The Big Lebowski Credits Done in the Style of True Detective

The Big Lebowski and True Detective are both stories about pairs of men with different worldviews confronting nihilism as they search for missing women. If you found the latter a bit self-serious, then you may find that this elegant mashup nicely punctures its pretensions.

But if, like me, you’re a fan of both works, you will likely just enjoy seeing them put in conversation. Does the Dude think time is a flat circle? He does, right? And Walter, like Marty, is a more religious man who has little patience for those who believe in nothing. I guess that’s the way the whole durned human comedy keeps perpetuatin’ itself, down through the generations.
