Very Strange Little Group of People
13 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I freely admit I am a fan of "The Big Lebowski", though I have not attended a Lebowski Fest. I suppose that is something I need to do sooner or later.

While this could be dismissed as a film about a group of losers (which in many ways it is), it is also a great look at American pop culture and the way that something can rise from nothing to take on the world.

The original film flopped. Hard. But it grew to become a cult film, and now the few people who decided to meet in a bowling alley are now hosting Jeff Bridges at annual concerts. That just blows my mind. No other film - with the exception of "Rocky Horror Picture Show" -- has this kind of following and attracts this many people.
