And here's the original trailer for The Big Lebowski from Gramercy Pictures in 1998, also on YouTube:
"The Dude", Jeff Lebowski, is unemployed and as laid-back as they come. That is until he becomes a victim of mistaken identity, and two thugs break into his apartment with the errant belief that they're strong-arming Jeff Lebowski - the Pasadena millionaire. Join the "Dude" and his bowling buddies on their journey that blends unforgettable characters, kidnapping, a case of mistaken identity and White Russians. Enter the visually unique and entertaining world from the creative minds of the Coen brothers and remember: the Dude abides. The Big Lebowski is directed by the Coen Brothers (Joel & Ethan), and it was first released in 1998. The film actually premiered at the Berlin Film Festival before opening in theaters around the world that year. Park Circus will re-release The Big Lebowski in cinemas in the UK and Ireland starting September 24th. No word on any US re-release plans. Who wants to catch this on the big screen?

That seems to be a very common viewpoint regarding these guys, in my experience. People either love a film of theirs or they just don't get it. Personally, O Brother Where Art Thou is one of my all time favorites, but I know someone who thinks it's one of the most boring films they've ever seen. I know people who hate Lebowski, but I absolutely love it. That's one of the reasons I love the Coens, their films can be so different from one to the next, and you never know how it'll affect you or others. Raising Arizona, Miller's Crossing, and Barton Fink are also fantastic. Haven't seen Blood Simple though.

I agree. But sometimes, for me at least, it takes another watching. i really like Lebowski a lot, but didn't the first time I saw it. However, like grimjob says, that's the thing about Coens. I absolutely hated Barton Fink and Miller's Crossing, but loved O Brother Where Art Thou and Fargo. You never know what you're gonna get from the Bros. Cohen.
