Sep 8, 2013 - You know, I've read The Big Sleep and I'm ashamed to say that I never even
noticed the similarities. I'm not sure that this really changes my
assertion that the Coen Brothers have nothing to say, as replacing a
character in someone else's story isn't really a statement. But they are
highly inventive filmmakers and I'm always interested in seeing where
they'll go next. Thanks for the insight.
Sep 8, 2013 - Well, I'd say there's way more to lebowski than that. It's impossible to
discuss it in a comment box on youtube. Without a doubt they have something
to say. They wouldn't make films if they didn't. Their films are actually
ridiculously dense with symbolism. The fact it works on numerous levels -
one being a stoner comedy, is masterful. Once you know what Sam Eliot's
character represents, you kind of 'get it more' in my opinion.
Sep 8, 2013 - Jazz4, I am one of those people who don't even get what the Coens were
doing with the Big Lebowski. Although the Dude is a wonderful character and
I laughed at some of the great comic moments in it, like all of the Coens'
movies. . . I have no idea what it was driving at. I think they are great
technicians with nothing to say. That said, I would love to be proven
wrong. I love the Coen brothers. I just wish I had a substantial reason for
loving them. What is The Big Lebowski about?
Sep 8, 2013 - The Big Lebowski is basically a take on a Raymond Chandler story. He was a
pulp/crime writer. (The Big Sleep) is one of his books - very similar.
Scenes and characters in Lebowski are taken directly from Chandlers books.
You have the millionaires wife supposedly kidnapped, private investigators,
ransom. Even the coffee mug throw is in one of his books, but his hero
ducks and misses it. The real joke is the idea of replacing the macho, 40's
ideal of a man with a modern burn out like jeff.

Aug 9, 2011 - @johnmetalheadd To be honest (and an honest hypocrite) here, I couldn't sit
through the Big Lebowski. I found it just too annoying. THEN I found out it
was a Coen Brothers movie. Now I look forward to seeing it. Hypocrite, I

Nov 8, 2011 - Each Coen film pays tribute to another, if not multiple other films they
have Crafted. Everyone has a Fav or a Dislike, most everyone that is. O
Brother as example is billed as being Loosely based on Homer's "Odyssey".

Country For Old Men 5) A Serious Man 6) Raising Arizona 7) Blood Simple 8)

Feb 1, 2011 - @brickbusterful Here's the deal about inland empire. unless you absolutly
enjoy and love Eraserhead with an undying passion, then I suggest that you
don't see inland empire. I know it's sad, but I have not seen Eraserhead.
*cowers away in terror* I know, I'm guilty. However,I have seen everything
else Lynch has made. I absolutly adore the Elephant man, and Muholland
Drive is ballin, but when I saw inland, I was actually upset and hated the
film. and my friends said, "But it's like Eraserhead."
Sep 2, 2012 - Hmm and A Serious Man at 8 before True Grit
Nov 14, 2010 - @brickbusterful What about 'Burn After Reading'?

got a minute check it out and please leave some feedback. Personally I
enjoy the video a lot, the first video I've made.

Jan 22, 2011 - What is the black and white film with James Gandolfini?
Nov 8, 2011 - Wonderful Tribute. In The "Corner of the Sandbox" the Coens play in, they
are alone. Terry Gilliam pulls a sort of close second.
Sep 2, 2012 - "What kind of man are you?"
Apr 9, 2010 - Awesome. This is awesome. Beautiful movies. Perfection. Great compilation.
