Monty Python's Life of Brian

 (1979)

Monty Python delivers a scathing, anarchic satire of both religion and Hollywood's depiction of all things biblical with their second film. The setting is Judea 33 A.D, a time of poverty and chaos, with no shortage of messiahs, followers willing to believe in them, and exasperated Romans trying to impose some order. At the centre of it all is Brian Cohen (Graham Chapman), a reluctant would-be messiah who rises to prominence as a result of a series of absurd and truly hilarious circumstances providing ample opportunity for the entire ensemble (John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones, Michael Palin, and Chapman) to shine in multiple roles as they mock everyone and everything from ex-lepers, Pontius Pilate, and the art of haggling to crazy prophets, Roman centurions, and crucifixion.

Monty Python's Life of Brian Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Monty Pythons Life of Brian comes to Bluray in the form of a 1080p/AVC transfer that is by far the best I have seen this movie look. From what I can gather, the original elements were very grainy, so Sony sent it to Dts Digital Image (formerly Lowrey digital image) for a clean up job, and they did a fantastic job, but not without some slight problems that effected picture stability. When compared with the DVD releases of this movie, the colors on this Bluray release are more vibrant, black levels are stronger, more stable, and the contrast is excellent. Detail is astonishing, giving the picture a three dimensional look, the edges of images are sharp and clear, and the overall picture is way less noisy. Now here is the bad. Skin tones are a bit reddish, sometimes black crush rears its ugly head, there is some artifacting right at the beginning of the movie, and some halos around images on occasion. In saying all of this, Life of Brian looks so much better than all of the previous releases it's not funny. Good job Sony!



Monty Python's Life of Brian Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  1.5 of 5

Sony has done some great things with the picture quality on this release, but the sound still suffers from the same problem as previous releases. Sony has offered two lossless choices here, a Dolby TrueHD track, and a PCM track as well. I could hear no difference between the two, and didn't expect to. The sound quality of the soundtrack is typical of that era. It sounds thin, inconsistent, occasionally muffled, sometimes harsh, and the instruments in the score have had the natural timbre sucked out of them. On occasion the dialog can sound hot and harsh, the music sounds constricted, bass limited, and imaging is confined to the frontal soundstage as the surrounds are barely used. To be fair there is some moments the soundtrack does not sound half bad. This soundtrack does sound way better than all of the previous releases of this movie. The fact is the soundtrack is the weakest part of this movie, but it has never been the strong point of any of the previous releases either. I commend Sony for releasing the soundtrack with a lossless audio, as we now hear this soundtrack with much more fidelity than we ever have.
