The Dude Still Abides

Jeff Bridges’ classic performance as The Dude in The Big Lebowski was inspired by the real life Jeff Dowd, a slacker Los Angeleno who is still slacking it out nearly 15 years after the Cohen Brothers movie became a cult classic.

NBC News has an interview with Dowd on the short documentary by Jeff Feuerzeig (who previously directed the exceptional The Devil and Daniel Johnston), which “reveals Dowd’s younger years as an anti-war activist and also tracks his post-Lebowski life, as Dowd travels around the country speaking to fans.”
