0x20 Monty Python: Almost The Truth - The BBC Lawyer's Cut (October 03, 2009)


To commemorate the 'Ruby Jubilee' of Monty Python, this film takes us on a journey telling the story of the Pythons from start to finish. Starting with the very humble beginnings of how the legendary British comedy troupe emerged, we learn how the cast met, their early influences and how they went on to create ground-breaking television, and their transition into movies that would change the face of comedy forever. Featuring brand new interviews with John Cleese, Terry Jones, Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin, and Eric Idle as well as archive interviews from Graham Chapman, this film explores the highs and the lows, and examines how Monty Python became a British institution. This is the first time the Pythons have come together for a film project since 1983's Monty Python's The Meaning of Life.

0x17 The Pythons - Somewhere in Tunisia, Circa A.D. 1979 (January 01, 0001)


50 minute documentary, made on location in Tunisia during the shooting of Monty Python's Life of Brian. There are interviews with all of the troupe, excerpts from the TV series and their earlier films, and from some of the solo projects the individuals worked on. Some of the rehearsals for this film are shown. This is actually a fascinating documentary and a superb extra to the film. It gives an insight into the personalities of each of the performers and their relationships with one another. No Monty Python fan should be without this. From the Criterion Edition DVD.

A short film by Monty Python made in the early 1970s, never intended to be seen by the public, only for the employees of Close Up toothpaste.

0x13 Monty Python In Aberystwyth (May 12, 2009)


In 1979, Monty Python's Life of Brian opened in cinemas around Britain, finding a place for itself in movie history. However, the film's release was plagued by controversy, causing many local authorities to ban showings of the feature. By 2009, the ban only remains in place in Aberystwyth. This documentary reveals how Sue Jones-Davies, the city's mayor — and the actor who played Brian's girlfriend in the movie — has campaigned to have the ban lifted. Includes contributions by Pythons Michael Palin and Terry Jones
