Pdf Ê The Big Lebowski À J.M. Tyree

The Big LebowskiH playful and subversive references to film history especially to Raymond Chandler's world of hardboiled detective classics and the world of film noir The Big Lebowski is the rarest kind of film a comedy whose jokes become funnier with repetition The same goes for its multitudinous jukebox like references to other films many of which open up vistas for intertextual interpretation Underneath the film's breakneck pacing and foul mouthed characters a farcical collection of flakes losers and phonie Some wonderful framing and analysis though I'd like to see a wider range of sources and approaches to the film a feature of many of the BFI series

J.M. Tyree À The Big Lebowski Epub

Since its release nearly ten years ago The Big Lebowski has become a cult classic with a worldwide following having survived the baffled reaction of many mainstream critics Its fans tend to be fanatical congregating at 'Lebowski Conventions' in bowling alleys across American and Britain and even dressing up as characters from the film Among the funniest films of the last twenty five years and one of the high water marks of 1990s genre recycling and pastiche The Big Lebowski is also littered wit Contains a few interesting insights notably the way the stylistic mish mash of the film resembles the variety of isolated subcultures of Los Angeles and the way the film fits into an oeuvre spanning critiue of masculinity on the part of the Coens; a late comparison to authors of postmodern literature such as David Foster Wallace and Dave Eggers was intriguing but was thrown in the mix much too late to become substantively developed in any way Overall the authors spend a lot of time fleshing out ideas that are not hugely original and thus fail to shed much new light on the subject matter only elucidating in slightly greater detail what's already fairly widely understood They mentioned in the beginning that they hoped not to overwhelm the comedy of the film by focusing overly much on the themes but honestly they really don't do the comedy or the themes justice And my goodness there are some jarring factual errors here for example the claim that John Travolta is reading Madame Bovary on the toilet in Pulp Fiction instead of the could hardly be different Modesty Blaise
