Monty Python’s Life Of Brian (15)


Director:Terry Jones. Starring: Graham Chapman,  John Cleese,  Michael Palin USA 1975. 94  mins.

Monty Python’s delirious send-up of the New Testament is a sustained cult classic that is frequently argued as the funniest film ever made. LIFE OF BRIAN is Monty Python’s achingly funny take on religious belief in general, Roman history, and the muddled and uncertain origins of what really is “gospel truth” — all wrapped up in a parody of bloated Biblical epics.
