I am the dread captain white russian! // weekend thoughts

So, I watched The Big Lebowski [IMDB link] again this weekend. That movie so rawks. One thing I love about it is how the main character manages to make it through almost the entire movie without really *saying* anything. Almost all he ever says is just empty statements without any real content (repeating what the other person just said, and so forth). This is also true for most characters in the flick, but his being the main character really emphasises the lack of meaningful dialogue he performs. That, and he is *never* sober through the entire film. Least, not that I can remember. His preferred drink is a white russian, and he seems to have one in his hand for at least half the movie.

Truly a great work of art, that film.
