  • The Big Lebowski

    1998. USA. Directed by Joel Coen. Screenplay by Joel Coen, Ethan Coen. Music by Carter Burwell. Cinematography by Roger Deakins. Editing by Roderick Jaynes, Tricia Cooke. Casting by John Lyons. Production design by Rick Heinrichs. Costume design by Mary Zophres. Supervising sound editing by Skip Lievsay. With Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Julianne Moore, John Turturro, Jon Polito, Steve Buscemi. A case of mistaken identity exposes Jeff "The Dude" Lebowski—a poor L.A. slacker—to a world of thugs and nihilists in this surreal chase tale, complete with signature Coen brother fantasy sequences. The Coens, along with Goodman, Turturro, and Deakins, return to the setting of Los Angeles to craft a film that's worlds away from Barton Fink in both tone and style—proving that comfortable collaborations and originality are not antithetical. 117 min.
