Life of Brian
Condemned as heresey by the Cathloic Church based only on a plot summary that led them to believe that Brian WAS Jesus. The movie takes place at the same time as Jesus was born, and Brian is MISTAKEN as the Saviour, once at birth and again later in his life. It is this second mistake that will change your views on religion forever. As with any Python film, as the plot runs out, weirdness enters in the form of a totally offbeat interlude. However this film recovers with at least a semblence of an ending.
No one is safe from the Python's skewer, not the Romans, the Jews or even the Samaritans. Don't mix politics and religion at the dinner table, fire up this DVD instead.
"I think it was "Blessed are the cheesemakers". "
"Oh, it's blessed are the MEEK! Oh, I'm glad they're getting something, they have a hell of a time."
"It is a sign that we should remove our left shoe! No! It is a sign that we should follow him!"
"He's not the Messiah. He's a very naughty boy!"
"Yes sir, bloody miracle, sir. Bless you!"
"Who cured you?"
"Jesus did, sir. I was hopping along, minding my own business, all of a sudden, up he comes, cures me! One minute I'm a leper with a trade, next minute my livelihood's gone. Not so much as a by-your-leave! "You're cured, mate." Bloody do-gooder."
"Look, I don't think it should be a sin, just for saying "Jehovah".All I did was say to my wife, "That piece of halibut was good enough for Jehovah!""
"Look, you've got it all wrong! You don't NEED to follow ME, You don't NEED to follow ANYBODY! You've got to think for your selves! You're ALL individuals!"
Crowd: "Yes! We're all individuals!"
"You're all different!"
Crowd: "Yes, we ARE all different!"
ONE Man in crowd: "I'm not..."
"I'm not the Messiah! Will you please listen? I am not the Messiah, do you understand? Honestly!"
"Only the true Messiah denies His divinity."
"What? Well, what sort of chance does that give me? All right! I am the Messiah!"
"He is! He is the Messiah!"
"All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us? "
