  • A Liar's Autobiography: The Untrue Story of Monty Python's Graham Chapman

    2012. United Kingdom. Directed by Bill Jones, Jeff Simpson, Ben Timlett. Hilarious, heartbreaking and “completely different,” the truly false biopic of Monty Python's Graham Chapman is a eye-popping 3-D orgy of irreverence. Created in 17 different styles of animation, the film traces a fanciful life story that interweaves actual events and fantasy, narrated by the author himself (from the great beyond), as well as his Python pals John Cleese, Michael Palin, Terry Gilliam, and Terry Jones. While many of the adventures described by this troubled comic genius may never have been lived by him, they do reflect the explosively transitional era he helped usher in. Openly gay, alcoholic, and righteously slutty, Chapman pioneered the type of self-referential humor that so many great comedic talents have embraced today. With the special cameo voice talent of Cameron Diaz as Lucien Freud. Print courtesy of Epix. 85 min.
