The Big Lebowski (7+ viewings)
Plot : The dude Jeff Lebowski (Jeff Bridges) spends his time bowling and doing drugs - untill one day some guys ruin his rug : when they mistake him for the rich man with the same last name. The dude is thrown into a mystery of the other Lebowski's kidnapped wife - where nothing is as it seems.
Story : The events in the story bounce back and forth from the kindapping mystery and the bowling tournament. With his friends and bowling team Walter (John Goodman) and Donnie (Steve Buscemi) as they "help" him out with the mystery. It's a perfectly executed mystery as it dosen't rely on shock value rather than it's hillarious approach to serious matters.
Humor : The first half you can't stop laughing the entire time - with the second half still subtly funny , but more focused on the story and characters. Tons of highly original style and a hillariously horrible narrator - make this one of the funniest you'll ever see.
Visuals : Beautifull throughout the entire film , espicially with it's crazy surreal dream scene and the camera in the bowling ball view : not to forget it's lovely bowling scenes - all of this accompinied by a great unforgetable soundtrack.
Sypnosis : Easily the best Coen brothers film , sucseeds all their other works - in visuals , comedy , and story telling : and earns it's spot as one of the best.
