Naro-Minded presents The Big Lebowski
 Naro-Minded presents The Big Lebowski
Fri, July 14 at 9:15
n Los Angeles, this hilarious caper from Joel and Ethan Coen stars Jeff Bridges as the Dude, a carefree seventies-style dropout who hangs out at the local bowling alley with his buddies Walter (John Goodman), a chronically irate Nam vet, and Donny (Steve Buscemi), the trio’s sweet but dim verbal foil. Although his laid-back existence is interrupted by at least three extortion and kidnapping plots, all of which revolve around an elderly millionaire in a wheelchair (David Huddleston), the Dude—who’s not only amiable but infinitely resilient—comes out smiling. There's clever dialogue, seductive camera work, and beautiful production design (the lavish dream sequences look like Busby Berkeley on Ecstasy), but in the end there’s no escaping the feeling that the Coens are speaking a secret language. With Julianne Moore and John Turturro. (1998, R, 119 mins)
