We all know the Dude’s rug tied his room together, but who saw the Persian carpet (and its being micturated upon) as an allegory for Operation Desert Storm? In this video essay, the world’s favorite stoner writes shady checks, George Bush gets tricky with wordplay, and Walter Sobchak bullies everyone into metaphoric war. The Coen brothers are no strangers to double meanings and complex plot structures, and in The Big Lebowski, not only do the filmmakers make pedophilia jokes, they also accidentally foresee the future.
