The Big Lebowski (1998)
The Coen Brothers' cult classic features some of their most memorable symbols, lines, and characters: the rug ("it really tied the room together"). The White Russians. The cardigan. "Nobody fucks with the Jesus." The gutterballs. "Shut the fuck up, Donny!" And, of course, Jeff Bridges' ever-abiding Dude, "or, uh, His Dudeness, or uh, Duder, or El Duderino, if you're not into the whole brevity thing." Since its release, The Big Lebowski has become an ur-text for stoner-slackers everywhere. While the plot -- inspired by the complex noirs of Raymond Chandler -- is deliberately impenetrable, don't let narrative logic bog down the fun.
