The new featurettes are actually the strongest pieces to be found on this 10th anniversary edition. There’s the new “Introduction” to the film (which is almost as funny as the film itself) and the new featurettes “The Dude’s Life” and “The Dude Abides: The Big Lebowski Ten Years Later”. Both of these feature new interviews with the cast and crew, some of which is a bit hyperbolic (Julianne Moore’s insistence that Bridges should’ve won an Oscar for his work here), but most of which is humbly appreciative of the second life that Lebowski has taken on. Bridges, however, is the most vivid during these segments, happily retelling dozens of stories about the film and its after-effects, all while radiating an infectious warmth towards this career-making flick and the fans that love it.
