Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

 

“Mark it eight, Dude.”
 
What do you do for recreation? If your answer is that you bowl, drive around, and have the occasional acid flashback, you are probably the Dude, the hero of the Coen brothers’ ingenious 1998 film The Big Lebowski.
 
If your answer is instead, “I watch The Big Lebowski,” then this book is for you. This is the first comprehensive, illustrated history of the film, complete with never-been-told stories from members of the cast and crew, sidebars on everything from the Dude’s drink of choice (the White Russian, or, as he calls it, the “Caucasian”) to Marty the Landlord’s interpretive dance, and guest essays by such Lebowski experts as the founder of the religion of Dudeism and the owner of the Little Lebowski Shop in New York. Richly illustrated throughout, this book is funny, insightful, and will make you appreciate Lebowski on a whole new level.
 
Trust us when we (the royal “we,” you know, the editorial) say that this book will really tie your room together.

Short and sweet. This book is a lot of fun. It could be read in cover to cover fashion or you can flip through it and jump in anywhere. Fun, informative, and a lot that I have not read or known before. If you are a fan, this is a must.

If you're a true fan of this classic cult film, you can't be without this book. It's beautiful on the outside, perfect to display, and chock full of interesting facts and anecdotes about the movie and the Coen brothers in general.

I know there are folks who consider The Big Lebowski (the movie) much ado about nothing - and a little encyclopedia on it with very funny pictures would have even less reason to exist - BUT - it really does give a good insight into the world (and maybe minds) of the Coen brothers as well as the cult following that's grown up around the movie. It doesn't matter if you're a fan or not - you could even be a social anthropologist or film history doctoral student - but this book is just pure fun on its own - and actually begins to make sense once you've also seen the movie. It also alerts you to things to look out for the next time you watch the movie. Again.

What a book! If you thought film criticism was dull and dry, read this! It's lively, fun, and insightful. And if you're a Lebowski fan, you'll love it all the more for all the behind-the-scenes tales, inspirations, and "analysis" of themes, famous lines, and gags. It's great stuff.

This book has a lot to offer, it almost seems like a textbook for a class on the Big Lebowski. Tons and tons of Lebowski related tidbits that would surprise the most die hard fans. Put this at the top of your Lebowski list. But, that's just like, my opinion, man...
