Taking the briefcase, the kidnappers escape on motorcycles. After another game of bowling, the Dude's car is stolen with the real briefcase inside. Lebowski's daughter Maude calls the Dude, explaining that she took the rug and inviting him to visit her.
She plays him a pornographic video revealing Bunny was one of Treehorn's actresses.

The Dude's car is recovered by police, minus the briefcase, but inside the Dude finds the homework of a high school student named Larry Sellars. The Dude Various The Big Lebowski Original Motion Picture Soundtrack forcibly brought to Treehorn, who is seeking Bunny and the money she owes him.
Treehorn drugs the Dude's white Russian cocktail, causing him to dream about starring in a Treehorn film about bowling with Maude. Awakening in police custody, the Dude is assaulted by the Malibu police chief. After being kicked out of a cab, the Dude is unknowingly passed by Bunny, revealed to still have all of her Various The Big Lebowski Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. The Dude returns home to find his bungalow ransacked by Treehorn's goons. He is seduced by Maude, who hopes to conceive a child but wishes him to have no involvement in its upbringing.
She explains that her father has no money of his own, Pete Willsher And T Kelly Images her late mother left everything to the family charity. Having had an epiphany, the Dude has Walter drive him to the Lebowski estate, where Bunny has returned, and the truth of her disappearance is revealed: When Bunny left town on an unannounced trip, her nihilist friends faked her kidnapping to extort money from her husband; Lebowski, who hated his wife, withdrew the ransom from the foundation but kept it for himself, instead giving the Dude a briefcase containing phone books.
Walter and the Dude confront Lebowski, who refuses to admit responsibility, so Walter picks him up and throws him out of his wheelchair, thinking he is also faking his paralysis.

They go bowling, and the Dude encounters the film's cowboy narrator, who tells the audience that Maude is pregnant with a "little Lebowski" and hopes that the Dude and Walter Garfield Fleming Dont Send Me Away win their upcoming bowling tournament.
The Dude is mostly inspired by Jeff Dowdan American film producer and political activist the Coen brothers met while they were trying to find distribution for their first feature, Blood Simple. Exline also belonged to an amateur softball league but the Coens changed it to bowling in the film, because "it's a very social sport where you can sit around and drink and smoke while engaging in inane conversation".
According to Julianne Moore, the character of Maude was based on artist Carolee Schneemann"who worked naked from a swing", and on Yoko Ono. It'll be something he can really run with," Joel said in an interview.
The film's overall structure was influenced by the detective fiction of Raymond Chandler. Ethan said, "We wanted something that would generate a certain narrative feeling — like a modern Raymond Chandler story, and that's why it had to be set Murray Head One Night In Bangkok Los Angeles We wanted to have a narrative flow, a story that moves like a Chandler book through different parts of town and different social classes.
In the movie adaptation of Chandler it's the main character that speaks off-screen, but we didn't want to reproduce that though it obviously has echoes. It's as if someone was commenting Peter Broderick Float 2013 the plot from an all-seeing point of view.
And at Various The Big Lebowski Original Motion Picture Soundtrack same time rediscovering the old earthiness of a Mark Twain. The significance of the bowling culture was, according to Joel, "important in reflecting that period at the end of the fifties and the beginning of the sixties.
That suited the retro side of the movie, slightly anachronistic, which sent us back to a not-so-far-away era, but Various The Big Lebowski Original Motion Picture Soundtrack that was well and truly gone nevertheless. The Coens decided to make Fargo in the meantime. This is a normal writing process for them, because they often "encounter a problem at a certain stage, we Various The Big Lebowski Original Motion Picture Soundtrack to another project, then we come back to the first script.
That way we've Various The Big Lebowski Original Motion Picture Soundtrack accumulated pieces for several future movies. In casting the film, Joel remarked, "we tend to write both for people we know and have worked with, and some parts without knowing who's going to play the role. I lived in a little place like that and did drugs, although I think I was a little more creative than the Dude.
According to Joel, he "came up with the idea of just laying free-form neon stars on top of it and doing a similar free-form star thing on the interior". This carried over to the film's dream sequences. In the first dream sequence, the Dude gets Various The Big Lebowski Original Motion Picture Soundtrack out and you see stars and Keith Mlevhu Love And Freedom all coalesce into the overhead nightscape of L.
The second dream sequence is an astral environment with a backdrop of stars", remembers Heinrichs. The Coen brothers told Heinrichs that they wanted Treehorn's beach party to be Inca Various The Big Lebowski Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, with a "very Hollywood-looking party in which young, oiled-down, fairly aggressive men walk around with appetizers and drinks.
So there's a very sacrificial quality to it. Cinematographer Roger Deakins discussed the look of the film with the Coens during pre-production. They told him that they wanted some parts of the film to have a real and contemporary feeling and other parts, like the dream sequences, to have a very stylized look.
For his dance sequence, Jack Kehler Various The Big Lebowski Original Motion Picture Soundtrack through three three-hour rehearsals. At each rehearsal, he went through each phase of the piece. Actual filming took place over an eleven-week period with location shooting in and around Los Angeles, including all of the bowling sequences at the Hollywood Star Lanes for three weeks  and the Dude's Busby Berkeley dream sequences in a converted airplane hangar.
She worked only two weeks on the film, early and late during the production that went from January to April  while Sam Elliott was only on set for two days and did many takes of his final speech. Deakins described the look of the fantasy scenes as being very crisp, monochromatic, Various The Big Lebowski Original Motion Picture Soundtrack highly lit in order to afford greater depth of focus.
However, with the Dude's apartment, Deakins said, "it's kind of seedy and the light's pretty nasty" with a grittier look. Various The Big Lebowski Original Motion Picture Soundtrack visual bridge between these two different looks was how he photographed the night scenes.
Instead of adopting the usual blue moonlight or blue street lamp Various The Big Lebowski Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, he used an orange sodium-light effect. To achieve the point-of-view of a rolling bowling Erlon Chaves E Sua Banda Veneno Banda Veneno Internacional Vol3 the Coen brothers mounted a camera "on something like a barbecue spit", according to Ethan, and then dollied it along the lane.
The challenge for them was Various The Big Lebowski Original Motion Picture Soundtrack out the relative speeds of the forward motion and the rotating motion. CGI was used to create the vantage point of the thumb hole in Keb Darge Keb Darges Legendary Deep Funk Volume 2 bowling ball. The original score was composed by Carter Burwella veteran of all the Coen Brothers ' films.
They knew that they wanted different genres of music from different times but, as Joel remembers, "T-Bone even came up with some far-out Henry Mancini and Yma Sumac. Burnett convinced Klein to watch an early cut of the film and remembers, "It got to the part where the Dude says, 'I hate the fuckin' Eaglesman! For Joel, "the original music, as with other elements of the movie, had to echo the retro sounds of the Sixties and early Seventies".
So there's a musical signature for each of them", Everton Chambers Hold Yu Corner Ethan in an interview. The album cover of their record Nagelbett bed of nails is a parody of the Kraftwerk album cover for The Man-Machine and the group name Autobahn shares the name of a Kraftwerk song and album. In the lyrics the phrase "We believe in nothing" is repeated with electronic distortion.
This is a reference to Autobahn's nihilism in the film. It was also screened at the 48th Berlin International Film Festival   before opening in North America on March 6, in 1, theaters. Gordons War The Rock Is Gonna Get You website's critics consensus reads, "Typically stunning visuals and sharp dialogue from the Coen Brothers, brought to life with strong performances from Goodman and Bridges.
Many critics and audiences have likened the film to a modern Westernwhile many others dispute this, or liken it to a crime novel that revolves around mistaken identity plot devices.
There's a large amount of profanity in the movie, which seems a weak attempt to paper over dialogue gaps. Todd McCarthy in Variety magazine wrote: "One of the film's indisputable triumphs is its soundtrack, which Various The Big Lebowski Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Carter Burwell's original score with classic pop tunes and some fabulous covers. No one does it like them and, it almost goes without saying, no one does it better. Bridges finds a role Various The Big Lebowski Original Motion Picture Soundtrack right for him that he seems never to have been anywhere else.
Watch this performance to see shambling executed with nonchalant grace Various The Big Lebowski Original Motion Picture Soundtrack a seemingly out-to-lunch character played with fine comic flair.
I doubt that there'll be anything else like it the rest of this year. However, Jonathan Rosenbaum wrote in the Chicago Reader : "To be sure, The Big Lebowski is packed with show-offy filmmaking and as a result is pretty entertaining.
But insofar as it represents a moral position—and the Coens' relative styling of their figures invariably does—it's an elitist one, elevating salt-of-the-earth types like Bridges and Goodman The film is infuriating, and will win no prizes.
But it does have some terrific jokes. Since its original release, The Various The Big Lebowski Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Lebowski has become a cult classic. The theater held the film Various The Big Lebowski Original Motion Picture Soundtrack for six weeks, which had never happened before.
