Thanks to reading the resourceful Movies/New Releases
section of this Amoeba Music website, I learned ahead of time that there will be a special new edition DVD reissue of the classic Monty Python
movie Life of Brian
being released tomorrow, January 29th, titled Monty Python's Life of Brian - The Immaculate Edition.
This new DVD release of the hilarious Terry Jones
directed 1979 Monty Python film starring John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle,
Terry Jones, and many others, is not the first time it has been released on VHS or DVD over the years, but this new 2 DVD reissue includes some extra bonus "immaculate" additions not seen before.
Life of Brian
is so worth watching if you have never seen it before or watching again if you have already seen it. Life of Brian
is the Monty Python crew at their comedic very best with a film budget to really stretch out their already hilarious TV sketches. Basically the plot outline is that "Brian," who is a lot like Jesus, is constantly getting confused with JC. Brian, who was born on the original Christmas and in the stable right next door to the Messiah, ends up spending most of his life
being mistaken for the messiah.
The movie is chock full of memorable (and oft imitated) parts. The two clips below include the movie's crucifixion, ending when all break into song (always look on the bright side of life) and the hilarious scene where Brian, the reluctant messiah, is being chased by his devoted mob up the hill, where he encounters the holy man in the hole who has sworn to silence for 18 years.
Tomorrow (Jan 29th) the new Monty Python's Life of Brian - The Immaculate Edition
will be available at Amoeba Music in the DVD section. Ask if you have any difficulty finding it.
