The Movie Itself
The first step, or maybe the last one, is to watch the movie, in case you haven't yet. But it's a good start to see the movie's IMDB file. Here you can find some details, such as the full cast, some basic data, ranking, awards, etc...http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0118715/
Still want to know it a little more before watching it? Already a fan? Here is a treasure every Dude's follower would like to have: The full movie script. Read it, download it, treasure it, cry on it, enjoy it...http://home.roadrunner.com/~moonshadao/LEBOWSKI.txt
Shakespeare and The Dude?
Ok, let's increase the fanaticism slowly...Adam Bertocci, a filmmaker, wrote a book named "Two Gentlemen of Lebowski", which is a melding between a Shakespeare story and our film. Do you think that wouldn't work? Well...a play with very good reviews has been performed in New York. Its slogan? "Shakespeare, with balls".http://www.runleiarun.com/lebowski/
Let's go party!!!
Since 2002, some really big fans started to organize the "Lebowski Fest". it's basically about watching again the movie at the beginning (of course), playing bowling and drinking a few White Russians.http://www.lebowskifest.com/
The Dude God
I warned you, this can be too strong... Yes, there is a religion based on The Dude. It´s called Dudeism and, believe it or not, they are more than 150000!!! Visit their website, pray a little bit, read the Manifesto and, why not?, get ordained as a Dudeist priest.http://www.dudeism.com/
The Dude was a prophet?
There is a point where fanaticism can become madness. Some people believe that The Dude prophesied the 9/11 attacks. Here you can read why...As far as I'm concerned, I'll go to watch the movie one more time, and remember, The Dude abides...http://www.themuy.com/archives/2004/11/18/the-dude-prophesizes/
