You know how it goes. You had every intention of attending the New York Lebowski Fest, which concluded last night with a panel discussion featuring the cast of the cult classic The Big Lebowski. The Coen Brothers’ comedy makes you laugh like few other movies, and it continues to reveal new layers with each successive viewing.
But life got in the way, man. You couldn’t quite get it together to make the trip. Nothing to do but head to the bowling alley — or, better yet, drown your sorrows in a white Russian.
Well, here’s a third option: Check out Miller-McCune’s recent roundup of Lebowski-themed research. You’ll find scholarly takes on the film’s politics, its subversive take on masculinity, and its links to the mythic story of the Holy Grail. It’s awesome, dude.
