The prevailing theme this week seems to be kind of out there stuff that was and is both pioneering and wildly popular. Monty Python and all of their movies and work definitely fit into such a category, and this movie is my absolute favorite of theirs.
This was an extremely controversial movie at the time, and with the way things are going, probably still is today. Intelligent, witty, silly, – easily one of the best comedies of all time. While most people have probably already seen this, I still want to recommend it to anyone who hasn't and also recommend the Criterion Collection edition to those who have for the hilarious “Sheep” deleted scene.
