THE BIG LEBOWSKI [ENG]
by Joel & Ethan Coen
The Coen bros. confirm their cinematographic culture. Principally the first part of the movie raises a wholesome fun in the audience. I have to say that in the second part emerges more haughtily the cynicism so typical of the Coen movies, that are never deeply-felt or ethical, but rather severe critics of American whims. Nobody is saved, not even the main character (the extraordinary Jeff Bridges), idle and inconclusive.
In short an intelligently constructed and technically elegant divertissement, that has nothing in common with some common comedies we’re used to. But that’s not enough. Where are values? I really hope not to spend my life playing bowling. The Coens strive to be high-level craftsmen perhaps and under this respect, definitely go for a strike.
