The Big Lebowski

I watched The Big Labowski as part of the Shimmerlands outdoor cinema at University of Melbourne, with the expectation that this would be a black and white Russian film.

After the movie I learned the following:

-The White Russian/ (as called”Caucasian” in the film) looks like a fun and easy-to-make drink.
-The way Julianne Moore makes her appearance is brilliant (painting while flying down from the ceiling)
-Walter Sobchak seems always angry.
-This Kaoru Betto shirt worn by the Dude added some more fun sparks when I am lost in the dialogues.

Overall I found it a free-spirited movie with loose plots, a playful attitude, many great music pieces and memorable scenes, both aesthetically and characteristically.

My favorite scene:

To me these scenes actually have some resemblance to a Lady Gaga music video or American Horror Story trailers, however it should be noted that this was all made pre-1998 when the computer-based CG animation technology probably only just started in film production.While in the film, these expressions just come out smoothly and all details are well-embedded as part of the dreamworld. Perhaps that’s one of the reason why it’s such a classic film that is still worshipped by people nowadays.
