THE FUTURIST! salutes The Dude

Dear Dude,

You have always abided in the heart of
THE FUTURIST! You have never let him down in whatever
role you tackled in your career. You have been in some films
that did not deliver the goods (ex: KING KONG),
but YOU always did deliver.
It is cliche to echo the phrase that you are
"one of the most underrated actors in film",
but it is true. You are always effortless in your
performances and have a flair for appearing "unactor-ly"
Perhaps CRAZY HEART is not one of your best performances
and maybe it could be said you received your Oscar due to
sentiment, but it is overdue and even if you never
were acknowledged, THE FUTURIST! would always
cite you as one of his most favorite of actors.

A list of lesser known
Jeff Bridges films
that should be watched

BAD COMPANY (19772)
FAT CITY (1972)

That's nice paragraph-shaping, TF!.

Also, Cutter's Way is brilliant. Baker Boys, not so much.
