THE DUDE BEHIND THE DUDE
Just how memorable was Jeff Bridges as the SoCal slacker “The Dude” in the Coen Brothers’ classic The Big Lebowski? So memorable that Two Boots Pizza named a spicy Cajun bacon-cheeseburger pie in honor of his character. On Thursday, shuffle over to Tompkins Square Park to score a free slice at this outdoor screening of the 1998 comedy. For even more Bridges appreciation, mark your calendar for Wednesday, August 15, when 92YTribeca screens Against All Odds (1984) as a part of its ongoing series “Jeff Bridges, Before the Dude.” Taylor Hackford’s drama concerns a crazy love triangle in which Bridges, in his prime, looks dashingly hot.
