Blu-ray review: 'The Big Lebowski' Limited Blu-ray Edition
Achievers, rejoice. The No. 1 bum of all moviedom gets a brilliant Blu-ray makeover in a special, limited edition, hardcover book-bound package that is a must for all devotees of The
Jeff Bridges as slacker extraordinaire Jeffrey Lebowski — aka His Dudeness, Duder or El Duderino “if you’re not into the whole brevity thing” — never looked more righteously rumpled in this visually vivid version of Joel and Ethan Coen’s 1998 comedy about mistaken identity, kidnapping, cannabis, bowling and carefree unemployment in sunny Los Angeles.
Following the misadventures of The Dude is, for many of us, more fun with each successive viewing as we watch witless thugs mistake him for a shady millionaire of the same name, thus dragging him into a Raymond Chandler-esque intrigue that also involves his best friends and bowling teammates, Walter (the priceless John Goodman), a pistol-toting Vietnam vet and Judaism convert with anger issues, and Donny (a hilariously sad-sack Steve Buscemi), a naive and easygoing loser who is constantly interrupting Walter’s tirades, which prompts one of the film’s many oft-quoted lines, “Shut the (bleep) up, Donny.”
