One of the great satires about religion, heresy, and funny enough even communism...coming from the six comedic geniuses of Monty Python. I can only quote what Python member and director Terry Jones said about the film,"'Life of Brian' isn't blasphemous because it doesn’t touch on belief at all. It is heretical, because it touches on dogma and the interpretation of belief, rather than belief itself."
4,5 masterful religious satire, exactly the way it is supposed to be. later edit: just watching a debate with John Cleese, Michael Palin and some religious dumbasses regarding this film.Cleese:" 400 years ago we'd have been burnt for this film. I suggest we'd make an advance." Hilarious!
