Loved It
3 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Seen, loved it, was in it!!!! Highly recommended for the dedicated Python fan. They express their own views and memories of The Flying Circus as do other celebrities. Multi-clips and interviews. A+++++++. This was made just before Graham Chapman died in the midst of the SNL 25th anniversary celebration. Very informative, poignant, funny a real insight to what it was like during the making of the Flying Circus. As always, Terry Gilliam clips all over the place. They explain how it was made and what they went through to make it. They also interview true Python fans and ask their opinions (that's the scenes I was in). You need it in your collection. Originally shown as a Tiger Television Production on Showtime.
