Not just for Python fans.
The varying tones give a patchy feel to the enterprise without adding up to anything as radical as the Pythons' own assault on TV conventions. A cordial tribute to a fascinating chap nonetheless.
The film's mostly for Python completists, of whom there are many, as well as for animation junkies who will groove on the grab bag of styles.
Apart from Chapman's dry observational tone and the others' silly voices, there's not much here to touch Python fans accustomed to soaring in a higher stratosphere of humour.
It's a very naughty tome, with many dangling bits.
It's like watching Yellow Submarine laid over a celebrity-therapy episode of Dr. Phil.
Fosters a messy, colourful memory in your mind: surreal, psychedelic, sometimes funny, but frustratingly empty beneath the surface, a disappointingly inadequate tribute to a great comedian.
the very way that A Liar's Autobiography has been brought to the big screen saps all the flavour and humour, lacking any of the real bite possessed by one of our most beloved Pythons.
Unfortunately, its laudably ambitious decision to tell Chapman's story via 14 different animation styles and distribute it in 3D makes you long for a straight TV biopic.
The experience of A Liar's Autobiography is ultimately deflating instead of celebratory.
Even at 85 minutes, the movie often drags as if there was insufficient quality material to draw upon.
That the film is a bit of a mess reflects Chapman's life precisely.
Utterly bizarre and random biography of the late Graham Chapman, full of alcohol and homosexuality. He'd have loved it.
Ex-Python Graham Chapman reads from his fictional autobiography, with a dozen different animators illustrating scenes in vastly different styles; topics covered include his battle with alcoholism and with sitting on people's faces in all sorts of places. The definition of uneven, with flashes of Pythonesque WTFiness lighting up long, meandering dull stretches; specialized audiences (you know who you are) may dig it.
Ingenious and rather silly! Not only is that how one can describe this movie. But, it is also how you can describe Graham Chapman. Absurdly genius animations and narration from the man himself. Give fans of the late-Python, a glimpse into the mind and life of the beloved comedian.
