NPR and NYT discuss the Coen Brothers and The Dude

In February, the IL Book Discussion Group will be discussing Cathleen Falsani’s The Dude Abides: The Gospel According to the Coen Brothers.

NPR’s Weekend Edition did a review of the book this past weekend.

Here is a link to the piece.

Here is a link to the transcript.

Also, the New York Times had an article on the academic books that are coming out about The Big Lebowski.  One which caught my fancy was “The Year’s Work in Lebowski Studies.” And a little irreverently, the article says, “Where cult films go, academics will follow.”  Hmmm… not sure what to make of that.  ;-)

Personally, I plan to re-watch some of the Coen Brother’s movies over the holidays.  Certainly, The Big Lebowski is on my list!
