Monty Python’s Life Of Brian (15)
Sunday 3 July, 9.15
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. The story follows poor Brian Cohen (Chapman), a Jewish anti-Roman activist mistaken for the Messiah through a series of unfortunate coincidences (he was, for example, born in the manger next door to that more famous stable) and near-constant misunderstandings and exaggerations by his growing band of clueless followers. 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.
