Just dropped in to see what con­di­tion the edi­tion is in? Although the strik­ing 4K pic­ture qual­ity will prob­a­bly be wasted on Dudeism’s bleary-eyed wor­ship­pers, The Big Le­bowski scrubs up well in ul­tra HD — and of course, that script re­mains as sharp, and quotable, as ever. there aren’t many films that can bal­ance el­e­ments of stoner com­edy, de­tec­tive noir and sur­re­al­ist farce this deftly, and it’s tes­ta­ment to the movie’s en­dur­ing ap­peal that we’ve still not seen any­thing quite like it in the two decades since the Dude first had his rug peed on — even the co­ens them­selves can’t match it for char­ac­ter. Whether it’s your first time or your thou­sandth, there’s some­thing to be en­joyed anew ev­ery time, whether it be a price­less Steve Buscemi line that gets stepped on, a mi­cro John Good­man freak-out or a deliri­ously daft Jeff Bridges fa­cial ex­pres­sion. truly, the Dude abides — here’s to the next 20 years, man.
