THE BIG LEBOWSKI, 1998, Universal, 117 min. Dir: Joel Coen
Jeffrey :The Dude” Lebowski (Jeff Bridges), a Los Angeles slacker who only wants to bowl and drink White Russians, is mistaken for another Jeffrey Lebowski, a wheelchair-bound millionaire, and finds himself dragged into a strange series of events involving nihilists, adult film producers, ferrets, errant toes and large sums of money.
A SERIOUS MAN, 2009, Universal, 106 min. Dirs: Ethan Coen, Joel Coen
Jewish physics professor Larry Gropnik (Michael Stuhlbarg) can’t catch a break: his wife (Sari Lennick) wants a divorce, his malady-laden brother (Richard Kind) is living on his couch, and his tenure is endangered by a small misunderstanding that snowballs into a fiasco. Only the Coen brothers could make such a modern-day Job’s plight so painfully hilarious; their return to the world of Minnesota academia in which they grew up yields one of their richest, most personal films to date.
BURN AFTER READING, 2008, Universal, 96 min. Dirs: Ethan Coen, Joel Coen
A disc of computer files from former CIA analyst John Malkovich is accidentally left at a gym, and the employees who find it (Frances McDormand and Brad Pitt) try everything they can think of to profit from it. The Coen brothers’ flair for outlandish characters reaches a screwball peak in this star-studded take on the spy film.
