Thanks to Dennis Cozzalio for reviewing the new book by the founders of Lebowski Fest. As much as I love the movie (it’s undoubtedly in my personal Top Twenty) it sounds to me like the book smacks too much of ruining a joke by explaining it.
Not that I don’t enjoy explaining why I think the movie is so great, but this book seems to be heavy on description and light on analysis or insight, so I think this Little Lebowski Urban Achiever is going to take a pass. Maybe I’m worried The Big Lebowski is in danger of becoming the next Napoleon Dynamite, which I never liked but overexposure and fan insistence on its hilarity probably inspired me to despise it.
But don’t let me stop you from checking it out: order it here and let me know what you think.
