Monty Python delivers a scathing, anarchic satire of both religion and Hollywood’s depiction of all things biblical with their 1979 feature film Life of Brian. Highly controversial upon it’s original release and banned in several countries, the film is now frequently ranked as the greatest comedy feature of all time by magazines and media outlets around the world. 

Directed by Terry Jones. Starring Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin.

★★★★★ - The Guardian
"Life of Brian is an unexpectedly earnest, sweet-natured hymn to the idea of tolerance."

★★★★★ - Empire
"A stylistically eclectic comic masterpiece."

★★★★★ - LA Times
"The more things change, the more we have to laugh if we are to have a prayer of remaining sane, and the Pythons are the best possible step in that direction."

★★★★★ - BBC.com
"A beautiful film, a perfect comedy, and a gentle triumph of silliness over pomposity, self-importance, and intolerance."

★★★★ - NY Times

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