Life of Brian (1979)


Brian was born on Christmas in the stable next door to the Almighty Christ and lives his entire life as an average momma’s boy. However, after joining a group that plots to rebel against the Romans and bizarre series of events, he is ultimately mistaken for the messiah. With a disappointing mother, hoards of one-track minded followers and the entire Roman army after him, what can Brian do to convince people that he isn’t the messiah let alone the fact that there is no true messiah? This film caters to a specific type of person that can understand Monty Python’s humor and I, fortunately, am one of them so this was a riot to watch. However, if you are new to The Python, some of the jokes may seem awkward or fall flat but this piece’s strength comes from its satirical jab at religion and how people blindly follow it. It’s raunchy, it’s over-the-top and it’s funny as Hell!
