It's the greatest movie Graham Chapman has been in since he died! Or so claims a particularly fitting bit of the trailer for the animated effort A Liar's Autobiography.
Based on Chapman's book of the same name and featuring the voice work of every surviving Python but Eric Idle the film employs a variety of animation styles to bring the life story of Chapman to the screen. It is - as it should be - quite odd.
Chapman was, very simply, a comic genius - albeit one whose life has some dark undertones. As one of the founders of Monty Python's Flying Circus, Chapman is responsible for some of the most enduring and still ground breaking comedy of all time. By all rights Python should have faded from mind decades ago but the work is just so strong that it simply will not go away. My own boy watched the entire TV series last year and still quotes from it quite regularly.
Chapman's decline and passing brought a sad end to one of the greatest comedy troupes ever and this looks to be a very fitting tribute. Check the trailer below.
