Anarchic Comedy in The Big Lebowski

The scene in The Big Lebowski that introduces the character of Jesus is a great example of anarchic comedy. The scene is performance orientated and removes itself from the narrative of the story. Additionally, the style in which it is shot differs greatly from the rest of the scene. The character almost gets his own "music video" to perform in as he is introduced. The film also has other moments in which the narrative is forgotten for the sake of comedy in the dream sequences that Lebowski has throughout the film.
