Ai fan scandalizzati dalla trascuratezza del pezzo di Repubblica di oggi sul Grande Lebowski consiglio piuttosto la celebrazione pubblicata da Rolling Stone
To think this is all about a strange movie that bombed when it came out in 1998. But in the 10 years since its woeful release, The Big Lebowski — a tangled Desert Storm-era comedic caper directed by Ethan and Joel Coen (Fargo, Raising Arizona, No Country for Old Men) — has become the most beloved movie of its generation. Young comic stars like Seth Rogen (the co-writer and star of the current hit Pineapple Express) and Jonah Hill (Superbad) worship the film. The Internet teems with Lebowski tributes and videos (like “The Mii Lebowski,” a homage done entirely using Wii video-game characters), and the film has inspired dozens of academic papers, with titles like “Logjammin’ and Gutterballs: Masculinities in The Big Lebowski.” Several times a year, thousands of costume-wearing fans flock to conventions called Lebowski Fest. Bridges attended a Southern California Fest a few years ago — “My Beatles moment,” he says. To date, The Big Lebowski has made $40 million on DVD — more than twice what it made in theaters — and in September, Universal is releasing a 10th-anniversary limited-edition DVD of the film, which will come (of course) in a bowling-ball case.
