MONTY PYTHON’S LIFE OF BRIAN (1979 film)

April 18

“Still holds up beautifully, as both pointed satire and silly, stakes-free comedy.” – Washington Post

“Python successfully lampoon religious attitudes rather than religion itself.” – Time Out

“An icon of irreverent comic brilliance.” – Pop Matters

Monty Python delivers the group’s sharpest and smartest satire of both religion and Hollywood’s epic films. 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 them. At it’s center is Brian Cohen, born in Bethlehem in a 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 ensemble to shine in multiple roles as they question everyone and everything from ex-lepers, Pontius Pilate and haggling to revolutionaries, crazy prophets, religious fanaticism, Roman centurions and crucifixion, forever changing our biblical view.

Rated R, 1 hour, 44 mins

“One of a kind.” – Guardian

Jeff “The Dude” Lebowski, mistaken for a millionaire of the same name, seeks restitution for his ruined rug and enlists his bowling buddies to help get it.
