The Big Lebowski: FREE Movie @ the Jung Center

Every Thursday in August, the Jung Center hosts free community movie screenings and lectures which examine film and psychoanalysis. Each screening will be followed by brief comments from a different speaker from The Houston Psychoanalytic Society and The Jung Center. We will provide popcorn and candy to get you in the movie mood. No registration required. Seating is on a first come, first served basis.

Fourth installment: The Big Lebowski

This legendary cult classic by the Coen brothers, which consistently ranks as one of the funniest movies of all time, follows the adventures of the hapless Jeffrey “The Dude” Lebowski (Jeff Bridges), whose easygoing life is upended when a pair of thugs mistake him for a millionaire, the “Big Lebowski.” A knowing homage to Philip Marlowe detective stories, the film skewers, among other things, decaying contemporary American myths of masculinity, militarism, consumerism, and self-reliance.

It's totally free, including the popcorn and candy, but it's a very small venue, so please only RSVP if you're sure you'll be there. I'll hold seats if possible.
