This is probably the Coens’ most well known film (despite being nominated for 0 awards), and I can’t deny it’s greatness, being one of the funniest of the Coens’ filmography. There’s lots of repetition both in dialogue and imagery/symbolism, which is a great when used well, like it is here. I’m probably going to end up doing a few more pieces based on The Dude and his tribe, maybe more along the lines of illustration, since this film tends to stay in my mind for quite a while after seeing it (another good quality). Next week is O Brother, Where Art Thou? which I haven’t seen yet, so I look forward to finally watching that.
