Monty Python’s Life of Brian (1979) (7/10)

List item

Life of Brian is a classic comedy film set in a very ahistorical Roman Empire, telling the story of Brian Cohen, a man born on the same night and the same street as Jesus Christ. Banned in several european countries for its extremely blasphemous depiction of the nativity, the film was certainly controversial for its time. Not only parodying the events of the nativity, the film also poked fun at British contemporary politics and several historical events through a deceptively simple narrative. Today, the film remains a serious contender for the title of most significant comedy film of all time.
