Time Warp: Life of Brian

April 18 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Returning to cinemas for its 40th Anniversary, in glorious standard definition and
mono-sound, 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 its 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. As Monty Python member Terry
Gilliam says, “It rips bare and makes you laugh at the world we’ve created for
ourselves.”

Set in 33 A.D. Judea, where exasperated Romans are trying to impose some
order, it is a time of chaos and change with no shortage of messiahs and
followers willing to believe in them. At its centre is Brian Cohen, a reluctant
would-be messiah who rises to prominence as a result of a series of absurd
circumstances providing ample opportunity for the entire Monty Python
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 the art of haggling, to
revolutionaries, crazy prophets, religious fanaticism, Roman centurions and
Crucifixion.
