I’m a Lebowski, You’re a Lebowski: Life, The Big Lebowski, and What-have-you

Posted by Notcot on Feb 23, 2013 in Cult Film
I'm a Lebowski, You're a Lebowski: Life, The Big Lebowski, and What-have-you

In 1998, the Coen Brothers followed the global success of their smash hit “Fargo” with a rambling tale of lies, corruption and bowling in early 90s “L.A. – The Big Lebowski”. It flopped at the box office. But in the years that followed, the movie took on a life of its own, spawning a culture of quotable lines, White Russians and even Lebowski Fest, an annual event attracting thousands of Big Lebowski die-hards. “I’m a Lebowski, You’re a Lebowski (“That’s terrific”) the curators of Lebowski Fest” offers the complete guide to one of the few true cult movies of the last twenty years, with photographs, real locations and interviews with the stars of the film, including John Turturro, John Goodman, Julianne Moore and Steve Buscemi – and a foreword by the Dude himself, Jeff Bridges. The book also contains a glossary, trivia questions and the ultimate soundtrack listing – in other words, the whole Lebowski. “Within the pages of this book, you’ll find out how to order a White Russian like an Achiever, how to react when an Asian-American pees on your rug, how to think like a nihilist, and more.You’ll also read interviews with the real-life eccentrics who inspired the film’s main characters, the actors who played them, and the famous siblings who conjured the whole thing up. We’ll throw ourselves into the mix as well, hopping into our own Dude-mobile (a 1972 Plymouth Fury III, complete with rust colorations just like the movie) to journey around the country gathering interviews and anecdotes. We’ll also reveal our own stories about how we came to love the movie and launch Lebowski Fest.”

Made of Tyvek it is constructed of densely-woven polyethylene fibres that are extremely tough and quite cheeringly 100% recyclable.

David Lynch – Masters of Cinema

Posted by Notcot on Jan 5, 2013 in Cult Film
David Lynch - Masters of Cinema

David Lynch (USA, b. 1946) is perhaps the best known of all cult directors, whose Mulholland Drive marks cinema’s arrival to the 21st century. His career began more than 30 years ago, with the groundbreaking, mystifying “Eraserhead” (1977). With “Blue Velvet” (1986), “Wild at Heart” (1990) and “Lost Highway” (1997) Lynch breathed new life into the sensory experiences of film audiences and disrupted narrative logic to mysterious and mystifying effect. In the early 1990s, he invented a new TV series genre with “Twin Peaks”. Although he is a Hollywood director, Lynch works at the edges of the studio system, exploring the many facets of his artistic talent, whose creations, including photography, painting and music, are now making their way into museums and galleries.
