Comparative religion, Python-style

Tonight we have one more pair of movie moments in honor of the 40th anniversary of Monty Python. This time, unbowed by the controversy stirred up by the allegedly sacrilegious “Life of Brian,” the Pythons take on Christianity, both Church of England and Roman Catholic style, in their final official work, “The Meaning of Life.” First, a look at prayer as it is most often offered.

And then a look at the most basic form of the right-to-life debate, with mild apologies to the interminable musical sequences of the dreadfully over-Oscared”Oliver” and assorted other badly bloated musicals. This is the sequence that deserved an award.

And, once more, we remind all Python lovers to check out Will Harris’s piece on Python solo projects at Bullz-Eye.com
