The Dude

The next entry in WeLiveInBeijing's summer screening series, The Big Lebowski is a 1998 film by Oscar winning team the Coen Brothers, starring Jeff Bridges.

The main character, who refers to himself as "The Dude", is a laid back, ex hippie whose main recreational interests include bowling and drinking White Russians白俄罗斯. The Dude's best friend is Walter, an aggressive Vietnam war veteran, who takes bowling very seriously. One day, some intruders burst into The Dude's apartment and ruin his favorite rug. In his attempt to recover his rug, The Dude gets involved in a tangled kidnapping scheme, meeting a variety of bizarre characters along the way.

The film feels like a detective story and was inspired by earlier films set in Los Angeles of the "neo noir" theme.

When it was originally released in 1998, it didn't do well at the box office, but later became the first cult film of the internet era. Now it is considered a modern classic and one of the most quotable films in the English speaking world.

The Big Lebowski is so popular, it has it's own festival

The Big Lebowski is so popular, it has it's own religion 

Now it is coming to Beijing. We'll be serving White Russians白俄罗斯 in honor of this occasion and encourage you to bring friends to the screening. Get in costume, have a drink and enjoy the film. After the screening, feel free to hang out, meet fellow WeLiveInBeijing members and watch some music videos.
