Great documentary
19 February 2014 | by (Co, Derry, Northern Ireland) – See all my reviews

We see the Pythons interviewed on location in Tunisia. They don't talk about the making of the film, they just talk about their careers. We do see behind the scenes footage, but if you're expecting your average making of documentary where they tell you what the film is about, where the idea came from, the characters and how great everyone is to work with, look elsewhere.

Tunisia looks amazing. I wanna go. It was the perfect location for Life Of Brian. And we get to see it in all it's glory.

The Pythons talk about the shows they did before filming "Brian". Eric Idle did The Rutles. A spoof on The Beatles. "George Harrison was always a Rutle fan." says Eric. Graham did the film Oddjob with David Jason, John did Fawlty Towers, Michael Palin and Terry Jones did Ripping Yarns, Jones wrote a book about the Canterbury Tales and Gillaim directed Jabberwocky starring Michael.

They talk about how Flying Circus got started and the reaction it caused.

Spike Milligan appears in this doc and chats with the Pythons since he was a huge influence.

We even see the boys relaxing before filming. They even talk about each other, in the most Pythonesque way possible.

I've seen this doc many times and I recommend this for anybody who liked the film.
