Hello, strangers!

Hello, stranger...

This is a private (from time to time) blog for my cinematic obsessions and scintillating (one-sided) reflections about movies. Feel yourself at home!

Dude (origini)

Dude means nice guy. Dude means a regular sort of person.
(screenquote from Easy Rider, dir. Dennis Hopper/1969)

Aţi fi băgat mâna oricui în foc că definiţia a fost postulată de Coeni, în The Big Lebowski, nu-i aşa? Greşit! Dennis Hopper a fost primul. El a fost cel care a trasat conturul în interiorul căruia fraţii Coen aveau să burduşească un personaj larger than life: The Dude. Sau, cu vorbele lor: And I'm talkin' about the Dude here. Sometimes, there's a man, well, he's the man for his time and place. He fits right in there. And that's the Dude, in Los Angeles. And even if he's a lazy man - and the Dude was most certainly that. Quite possibly the laziest in Los Angeles County, which would place him high in the runnin' for laziest worldwide. But sometimes there's a man, sometimes, there's a man. Aw. I lost my train of thought here. But... aw, hell. I've done introduced him enough.
