30 Days of Film (27): My Favorite Independent Film

The Big Lebowski. This goes without saying that it is one of my favorite films of all time. It is a period piece about the life of an LA bum in the early 90s. As far as I know it is one of the few period pieces actually filmed in the same period.

While some say Jeff Bridges is the star of this film, my absolute favorite character is Walter Sobchak, played by the amazing John Goodman. He is really the catalyst to the entire plot, walking over The Dude to try and come out ahead in a hilarious case of mistaken identity. Every character has their own qualms and quirks and the cast really drives the odd story.
