"The funniest and most sustained feature yet from Britain's bad boys." - Leonard Maltin After slaying the Arthurian legend in their now classic Holy Grail, the Pythons set their sights on the Greatest Story Ever Told. Blind faith, virgin birth, crucifixion - nothing is sacred in this epic send-up of ancient times, which draws on the cornball biblical blockbusters of the 1950s to lampoon celebrity culture in any era. Criterion has gathered the guilty parties- including John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin - for two audio commentaries as provocative and hilarious as the film itself.
