“This aggression will not stand, man.”
It’s not my favorite Coen brothers film — nothing tops The Hudsucker Proxy, nothing — but this dark crime comedy is still better than 98.2% of what you were thinking about watching today.
Bopping along with The Dude (a fantastically-funky Jeff Bridges) as he faces off with nihilists, rich pricks, anger-filled best buds, and freaky bowlers, it’s among the most-quotable movies of the modern age.
The cast is truly stellar, the zingers are many, and it’s 117 minutes of bliss.
To which some may say, “Yeah, well, you know, that’s just, like, your opinion, man.”
