Movies of 1998 Bracket Game Champion: The Big Lebowski
I don’t think it’s much of a surprise that the Coen brothers’ meandering slacker era take on western and Raymond Chandler tropes, The Big Lebowski came out on top in our 1998 movies bracket game. After all, I’m not aware of any of these other films inspiring widespread fan devotion nearly to the level that the Dude and his friends have, even resulting in the satirical establishment of an associated religion based on the Jeff Bridges character’s life philosophies, “Dudeism.”
Let’s take a look at some of the fan art that has placed the Dude into spots of honor –
By the way, Dudeism is definitely into the whole brevity thing, insisting on identifying all of its adherents equally. For instance, this is from the official website:
..the term “dude” is commonly agreed to refer to both genders. Most linguists contend that “Dudette” is not in keeping with the parlance of our times.
Whatever your approach to the teachings of the Dude, be it the consumption of a white russian, rolling a few balls, or a few other things…just be sure to abide.
