Big Lebowski The Making of a Coen Brothers Film SC (2015 W.W. Norton) comic books
1st printing. A firsthand account of how this extraordinary cult movie was made by the Oscar-winning Coen brothers. The Big Lebowski is a razor-sharp comedy thriller of mistaken identity, gangsters, bowling, kidnapping, and money gone astray, written by the Coens, directed by Joel Coen, and produced by Ethan Coen. Not given to talking publicly about their work, the Coens gave access to Tricia Cooke and William Preston Robertson to interview the cast and crew. In a prose style that complements the Coens' filmic one, the book discusses the Coens' oeuvre, the themes of their films, their atypical brand of humor, their craft, and their artistic vision. Softcover, 7-in. x 7-in., 224 pages, PC/PB&W. Cover price $17.95.
