Aro Recommended Big Lebowski, The


USA 1998, 116 minutes
Dir. Joel Coen
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Comedy / Black Comedy


Aroview: Rolling another warped vision down the gutter, the inscrutable minds of the Coen Brothers (FARGO, RAISING ARIZONA) endow this bowling comedy with their characteristically dark buffoonery, hauling slow-mo 70s 'survivor' Jeff Bridges into a kidnapping plot with fellow ten-pinner John Goodman.

Perhaps too shaggy-dog for some (not to mention the hairstyles), this doesn't rate as one of the Coens' best, but a great soundtrack and design agreeably evoke the mental twilight of a stagnant 'feel-good' L.A.
