Larry McMurtry’s Favorite Line in Modern Cinema Involves Tara Reid


The novelist Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana, who co-wrote the screenplay for Brokeback Mountain together, had a conversation over at the New York Review of Books about the Coen Brothers' True Grit. At the end of their chat, McMurtry says, "My favorite lines in modern cinema are from The Big Lebowski. Tara Reid’s character says, 'I’ll suck your cock for a thousand dollars.' And The Dude replies, 'I’m on my way to the ATM.' Which, really, Mr. McMurtry, those are your favorite lines in modern cinema? But also, at least there's someone who might get amped about Reid in The Big Lebowski 2. [NYRB]
