best critique of the judeo-christian religion anyone could ask for. absolutely hilarious. shines a light on just how fast facts change to fiction. in the case of religion, we're talking 2000 years of facts changing to fiction. what we get is exactly what life of brian so eloquently mocks - an incoherent theology based on presumptions, incorrect inferences, and obvious falsities. loved ever second of this brilliant movie.
Since my mother is a jew (which technically makes me one if you asked most other jews), I know I shouldn't laugh... But it gets me every time.
"I'm not a Roman! I'm a Jew! A Dead-Sea Pedestrian! A Heebie!" etc etc. Priceless.
"Are you the Judian peoples front? ..F@#k off , we're the peoples front of Judia"
Monty Python's Life of Brian, also known as Life of Brian, is a 1979 British comedy film starring and written by the comedy group Monty Python (Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin), and directed by Jones. It tells the story of Brian Cohen (played by Chapman), a young Jewish man who is born on the same day as, and next door to, Jesus Christ and is subsequently mistaken for the Messiah. The film contains themes of religious satire that were controversial at the time of its release, drawing accusations of blasphemy and protests from some religious groups. Thirty-nine local authorities in the UK either imposed an outright ban, or imposed an X (18 years) certificate (effectively preventing the film from being shown, as the distributors said the film could not be shown unless it was unedited and carried the original AA (14) certificate). Some countries, including Ireland and Norway, banned its showing, with a few of these bans lasting decades. The film makers used such notoriety to benefit their marketing campaign, with posters stating "So funny it was banned in Norway!" ... hehehehehe
