One of the reasons for the immense buzz surrounding the Coen brothers' latest masterpiece, "True Grit," is that it's the first time the duo has joined forces with Oscar-winner Jeff Bridges since their immensely quotable "The Big Lebowski."

One of the reasons for the immense buzz surrounding the Coen brothers' latest masterpiece, "True Grit," is that it's the first time the duo has joined forces with Oscar-winner Jeff Bridges since their immensely quotable "The Big Lebowski."

In fact, the tale of the man who's out there "takin' er' easy for all us sinners" has become a modern-day cult classic, and for good reason. Bridges turns in a tour-de-mellow performance as The Dude, Coen-favorite John Goodman steals the show as Walter the Vietnam vet, and who could forget John Turturro's Jesus (pictured), the pederast?

So pay homage this weekend at Studio 35's annual Dude-A-Thon, featuring two midnight showings Friday and Saturday and a (sold-out) beer tasting Sunday.
