Not quite sure what, if anything, this film has to do with Cloverfield, but it is worth watching for at least one thing; John Goodman.
After being involved in a car crash, Michelle (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) wakes up to find herself locked in a fallout shelter being told by Howard (Goodman) and Emmett (John Gallagher Jr) that outside the world is ending.
Damien Chazelle (Whiplash) is among the screenwriters on this very strange film that sits somewhere in the thriller / comedy / Sci Fi / drama genre. Goodman is equal parts wonderful, hilarious and terrifying.
Set in 1930s American Deep South, three escaped convicts (George Clooney, John Turturro and Tim Blake Nelson) attempt to avoid the authorities, tangling with a range of weird and wonderful characters, on their quest for hidden treasure.
The Dude (Jeff Bridges) a.k.a. Lebowski is mistaken for a millionaire Lebowski, and gets caught up in a series of events made worse by his barmy friends, Walter (John Goodman) and Donny (Steve Buscemi).
Narrated by The Stranger (Sam Elliott), this has all the twists and turns you would hope for from a Coen Brothers feature. With a supporting cast of the likes of Philip Seymour Hoffman and Julianne Moore, it is little surprise that it’s currently in IMDb’s top 250.
