Monty Python's Life Of Brian
With Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones & Michael Palin. 94mins
Monty Python delivers a scathing, anarchic satire of both religion and Hollywood's depiction of all things biblical with their second film Life of Brian.
Set in 33 A.D. Judea where the exasperated Romans try to impose order, it is a time of chaos and change with no shortage of messiahs and followers willing to believe in them. At its center is Brian Cohen, born in Bethlehem in the stable next door, who, by a series of absurd circumstances is caught up in the new religion and reluctantly mistaken for the promised messiah, providing ample opportunity for the entire Monty Python ensemble to shine in multiple roles as they question everyone and everything from ex-lepers, Pontius Pilate, from the art of haggling to revolutionaries, crazy prophets, religious fanaticism, Roman centurions and crucifixion, forever changing our biblical view.
