    Blaxploitation, Cassavetes and Broomfield – an eclectic mix!

    I think Chinese Bookie is one of Cassavetes’ very best, especially if you think about Cosmo as being John’s alter-ego and the strippers as being stand-ins for his stock company of actors. I also think The Big Lebowski is the Coen Bros. best.

      I think i would have to agree about both The killing of a Chinese Bookie and The Big Lebowski. I had a hard time the first time i saw Chinese Bokkie, i saw things i liked, but then other things i don’t think i could stand. Now the second time i saw it, i loved it and saw just about everything that was great about it. I could see that Metaphor about Cosmo and the club and Cassavetes and his film gang. That reminds of a similar connection made between Abel Ferrara and his movie Fear City. Lebowski i immediately loved.
