The Dude Abides

For all you Big Lebowski fans this has got to be a very memorable scene. This sequence is the Dude's dream/hallucination right after he's been drugged by Jackie Treehorn. This dream scene has it all. The Dude dancing on checkerboard floors. Saddam Hussein bowling attendant. The ridiculous bowling pin dancing women. I love how the Coen Brothers can make such gritty films like "No Country for Old Men," and "Millers Crossing," and also make this stuff with blatant sexual imagery and absurd choreography. As far as the graphics go there is a lot of green screen use and compositing. There is a great making-of section on the DVD which goes into detail of how they filmed the Dude sliding on the bowling track under the women. For those who haven't seen the film or are interested, check it out.
