This week, we could pick between three films to watch. I chose to watch the Coen Brother’s The Big Lebowski (1997). I decided to watch The Big Lebowski because I have heard about it being good, but I have never watched it. To be completely honest, I really did not like the movie. The plot line to me was pointless. I can see why they did some things in the movie, but overall it had no point. I didn’t really enjoy it at all. Everyone claims it’s so hilarious and definitely a movie to watch, but I was disappointed. In terms of noir, there are definitely elements of noir embedded into the film. I think that a lot of the art that was in the movie whether it was throughout the setting or Lebowski’s daughters art, it had some elements of noir in it. I also think that there were elements of noir in the way the movie was filmed and in some aspects of lighting. The lighting changes several times throughout the movie and at night in particular, there are definite elements of noir. I think that Lebowski’s daughter is definitely the “femme fatale” of the film. There are evident elements of noir in this film, so even though I didn’t necessarily like the movie, I was able to see elements of noir in it.
