THE BIG LEBOWSKI
THE BIG LEBOWSKI (1998) - One of the most subversively hilarious films of the late 20th century, this Coen Brothers production is a comedy of errors, a case of mistaken identity and a riot from start to finish. Jeffrey “The Dude” Lebowski (Jeff Bridges), an infinitely loveable aging Los Angeles hipster, is plunged into a horrendous set of ever-escalating circumstances, testing his laid-back calm at every turn. Allowing himself to be guided by his conspiracy theorizing Vietnam veteran bowling partner, Walter Sobchak (John Goodman), "The Dude" (aka the "Little Lebowski") seeks restitution for a soiled rug from another Jeffrey Lebowski (aka the "Big Lebowski"), a reclusive millionaire who enlists "The Dude" in solving the kidnapping of his errant wife. Absolute bedlam and chaos ensue. This is one of those rare classic films that demands repeated viewings. No matter how many times you may have seen it before, you’ll still be catching dramatic ironies, character arcs, subtle quirks, and ingenious wordplay that you missed previously.

ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN
ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN (1976) - Washington Post journalists Bob Woodward (Robert Redford) and Carl Bernstein (Dustin Hoffman) discover a connection between the 1972 Watergate burglary of the National Democratic headquarters and staffers at the Republican White House. With the support of executive editor Ben Bradlee (Jason Robards) and inside information from their ultra-secret source, "Deep Throat" (Hal Holbrook), Woodward and Bernstein doggedly connect the dots and follow the money all the way to the top. Faithfully adapted by William Goldman from the Pulitzer Prize-winning book authored by these same reporters, this is a thrilling - and true - account of the scandal that rocked a nation and brought down a President. Redford, Hoffman, and Robards merge seamlessly with their real-life counterparts in this tale of everyday heroism and truth versus corruption.
