The Big Lebowski – Saturday February 22nd!
A special Collective Arts / Smoque Shack Movie Night screening (with beer, and a menu item on hand) in anticipation of the long in development spin-off of The Big Lebowski, The Jesus Rolls, which makes its Ottawa Premiere the Week of February 28th!
“a seminal piece of cult movie-making…the crowning achievement in Joel and Ethan Coen’s amazing career.” (IGN)
“5 Stars! “It’s a pastiche of Raymond Chandler’s labyrinthine noir, anchored not in the hard-bitten Bogart but the quixotic pothead Bridges (perfectly cast)…In a perfect world all movies would be made by the Coen brothers.” (Empire)
94% Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes! “Typically stunning visuals and sharp dialogue from the Coen Brothers, brought to life with strong performances from Goodman and Bridges.”
When “The Dude” Lebowski is mistaken for a millionaire Lebowski, two thugs urinate on his rug to coerce him into paying a debt he knows nothing about. While attempting to gain recompense for the ruined rug from his wealthy counterpart, he accepts a one-time job with high pay-off. He enlists the help of his bowling buddy, Walter, a gun-toting Jewish-convert with anger issues. Deception leads to more trouble, and it soon seems that everyone from porn empire tycoons to nihilists want something from The Dude.
