Life of Brian (1979)

Life of Brian (1979, GBR) C-94m. *** D: Terry Jones. Starring Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin, Neil Innes, Spike Milligan, Charles McKeown, George Harrison. Now-classic satire on religious fanatism is British comedy troupe Monty Python's best film. Born on the same day as the messiah, nave Brian (Chapman) spends his life in Nazareth, among Roman centurions, Jewish would-be revolutionaries, and constantly bugged by his mother (director Jones himself). Absolutely hilarious gags, a laugh riot! Slightly uneven, like most Monty Python films, but first half is priceless. And remember: 'Always Look on the Bright Side of Life'! The actors appear in no less than 40 roles! Coproduced by ex-Beatle George Harrison. Complete title is MONTY PYTHON'S LIFE OF BRIAN.
