Life Of Brian:

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 centre 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 mistake for the promised messiah, providing ample opportunity for the entire ensemble (Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin) 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.

Monty Python And The Holy Grail:

King Arthur (Graham Chapman) and his Knights of the Round Table (John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin) on the trail of the elusive Holy Grail, encountering many nasty and long-winded characters (John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin) on the way. Who can forget the quest for a shrubbery to placate the fearsome Knights who say 'Ni', the fearless, and limbless, Black Knight, the mysterious wizard Tim and the horrific White Rabbit, with the big pointy teeth?

Extras Include:

  • Enlightening Commentaries by Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones, Plus General Complaints and Back-Biting by John Cleese, Eric Idle and Michael Palin
  • Exciting 'Follow The Killer Rabbit' Featurette
  • 'Dentists On The Job' Featurette

Total Running time: 3 hours 59 minutes
