Verily, I Say Unto Thee: The Dude Abideth

Abby Zimet

The Dude
has gone Shakespearean thanks to Adam Bertocci, a formerly little-known
screenwriter who took upon himself the lunatic but intriguing idea of
transforming the Coen Brothers' much beloved Jeffrey 'The Dude'
Lebowski, played by the splendid Jeff Bridges, into Geofrrey 'The
Knave' Lebowski. The resulting 75-page "Two Gentlemen of Lebowski" may yet make it to your neighborhood multiplex, or at least bowling alley.

"O toe!
Thou wouldst have a toe? A toe can be obtain'd.
Ways are known, Knave. Thou wilt not like to hear.
I'll have a toe for thee this afternoon."

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
