"He's not the Messiah. He's a very naughty boy!"

Monty Python's Life of Brian

This is, for me, the best film of the British comedy group Monty Python. More basting that "Knights of the Square Table" and less pretentious than "The Meaning of Life", the various sketches, here, have greater coherence and substance criticism. Even the production design is more elaborate, with the soundtrack and songs. The script, the best, no doubt, interpretations, satire oozes everywhere.
