The Dude Abides


Nearly 15 years after The Big Lebowski, Jeff Dowd – Joel and Ethan Coen’s real-life inspiration for the character of The Dude – is still happily slacking his way through life, largely unaffected by the fame the film has brought him.

In this short documentary, filmmaker Jeff Feuerzeig reveals Dowd’s younger years as an anti-war activist and also tracks his post-Lebowski life.
