Monty Python: Almost the Truth the Lawyer's Cut Blu-Ray


Monty Python: Almost the Truth the Lawyer's Cut Blu-Ray


You can purchase this blu-ray online today!


Synopsis: Monty Python reunites in this outrageous comedy and also features some of today's biggest comedians including Jimmy Fallon, Eddie Izzard, Dan Aykroyd, and Seth Green. The Pythons are matched against their contemporaries: rock stars, comedians, actors, politicians, Python-haters and potential axe murderers, in this never-before-seen outrageous comedy from the biggest comedy troupe of all time. Watch as Monty Python is brought to life on-screen in this six part mini-series which is airing on the IFC Chanel. The Monty Python troupe includes John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin and Graham Chapman.

Review: We love Monty Python here at the Legion.  When I say that we love Monty Python, I mean that we're complete fanboys.  We've seen all of the films that Terry Gilliam has directed.  We watch Michael Palin and John Cleese whenever possible in film roles.  Eric Idle still convinces us to watch the terrible films that he cameos in.   We still mourn Graham Chapman.  We're sad like that.  Needless to say, when there was a new Monty Python release coming out, it got our attention!

This blu-ray collects a six-part documentary series that will be running on the Independant Film Channel (IFC).  The documentary takes a unique look at the Python boys by conducting interviews with each of them about their days on the Flying Circus show, up to the present day.  They explain a lot of the behind the scenes motivations to things that we don't understand as fans, such as why there will be no new Python projects with the remaining boys.

This set really delves into any and everything you could want to know about Monty Python.  You even get to hear from celebrity fans like Dan Ackroyd and Eddie Izzard.  I highly recommend picking up this blu-ray.  Of note, its the only other Monty Python blu-ray release next to the Life of Brian, and this one is far more entertaining!

Rating: a strong 5 out of 5 stars
