“An incredibly silly film of great humor, brilliant design and epic insanity.” – Michael Wilmington, Chicago Reader

Monty Python takes on the Middle Ages and coverts Arthurian legend into uncontrollable lunacy in one of the most hilarious cult classics of all time! From its opening multi-language titles (that sure looks like Swedish) to the closing arrest of the entire Dark Ages cast by modern-day bobbies, Monty Python and the Holy Grail is the film that helped define the word “irreverence.” This time the Pythonites savage the legend of King Arthur, with all the Pythons collaborating on the script and assuming most of the onscreen roles, including Graham Chapman as King Arthur, John Cleese as Sir Lancelot the Brave and Eric Idle as Sir Robin the Not-Quite-So-Brave-as-Sir-Lancelot.  Propelled by an unending stream of anachronistic one-liners, non- sequiturs, and slapstick set pieces, the film follows the brave and foolish Knights of the Round Table as they embark up their lunatic search for the Holy Grail. Along the way, our hapless heroes endure many strange, stupid and hilarious adventures, ranging from a surreal run-in with the limb-impaired Black Knight to cracked conflicts with the dreaded, tree-shaped Knights Who Say Ni, killer bunnies, the Black Beast of Aarrgghh and an extremely rude Frenchman who threatens to “fart in your general direction!”   (Dir. by Terry Gilliam & Terry Jones, 1975, UK, 91 mins., Rated PG)
