The Big Lebowski begins with a case of mistaken identity which escalates when Jeffrey Lebowski - alias The Dude - attempts to seek recompense for the despoilation of his ratty-ass little rug, and then finds himself entangled in a kidnapping caper as a bagman - a situation that goes from bad to worse due to the interference of his hapless bowling partners.
In The Big Lebowski the Coen brothers have taken on the preoccupations of Raymond Chandler, but have given them a postmodern spin, while at the same time leaving Philip Marlowe's ethos intact as The Dude wanders thorugh the fractured world of nineties LA trying to do the right thing. Like the award-winning Fargo, The Big Lebowski is suffused with a droll humour and a verbal felicity that is as delightful as it is startling
It is 1967 and Larry Gopnik, a physics professor at a quiet Midwestern university, has just been informed by his wife Judith that she is leaving him since she has fallen in love with one of his more pompous colleagues.
His domestic woes accumulate: his unemployable brother Arthury is sleeping on the couch, his son Danny is shirking Hebrew school, and his daughter is filching money from his wallet in order to save up for a nose job. Also, a graduate student seems to be trying to bribe him for a passing grade while at the same time threatening to sue him for defamation, thus putting in jeopardy Larry's chances for tenure at the university.
As if all this wasn't enough, he is tormented by the sight of his beautiful next door neighbor sunbathing nude.
Larry's search for some kind of equilibrium is conveyed with the kind of humor, imagination and verbal wit that have made the work of Ethan and Joel Coen so distinctive.
