Double Feature!
MONTY PYTHON’S THE MEANING OF LIFE / AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT

MONTY PYTHON’S THE MEANING OF LIFE
1983, Universal, 107 min, UK, Dir: Terry Jones

This Grand Prix winner at the Cannes Film Festival includes a look at Terry Gilliam (BRAZIL, 12 MONKEYS)’s innovative directorial style with the gorgeously surreal opening short “Crimson Permanent Assurance.” Pushing comedy boundaries to the extreme, the cast of Monty Python sing, dance and vomit their way into retirement. Featuring, without a doubt, the greatest musical number about birth control in film history.

AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT
1971, Sony Repertory, 89 min, UK, Dir: Ian MacNaughton

A collection of sketches from the first two seasons of “Monty Python's Flying Circus” – all re-shot for this film - was the first taste most American viewers had of the iconic British comedy sextet. “Upper Class Twit of the Year,” “Nudge, Nudge,” “The Dead Parrot” and “The Lumberjack Song” are among the favorites seen here (along with Terry Gilliam’s trademark interstitial animation).
