Monty Python's Life of Brian | REVIEW | #74

It is my goal for 2023 to review 100 of my favourite films of all time.

Welcome to the Filmprobe Top 100 list...

Monty Python were a British comedy troupe who brought some of the funniest and most referenced pieces of comedy to screen. Life of Brian is no exception, a hilarious tale of Brian who is mistaken for the messiah and harassed by locals. The story may appear to be a loud and obnoxious comment on religion but in fact, Life of Brian is far from it. This movie is for audiences who don’t take life too seriously, some jokes have not aged too well but some I still quote to this very day. The whole cast are artistic genius’, each actor brings performances which live through cinema history time and time again.

I have to say, my personal favourite moment is of course Michael Palin as the Roman emperor with a speech impediment, I simple joke executed with complete absurdity. Life of Brian is not for everyone but you are truly missing out if you avoid this film, it is slapstick, over the top but most of all, Life of Brian is simplistic fun.
