Monty Python and the Holy Grail Reviews
I decided to start my challenge one day earlier, and what a movie to begin with!
Monty Python and the Holy Grail is considered to be one of the greatest comedies of all time, and for a good reason.
This low-budget film didn't just age well, but it sounds like it has been released 10 or maybe even 8 years ago, except it really makes you laugh out loud.
This is how irony should be used, this is how breaking-the-fourth-wall should be done, and this is a Self-reflexive film that keeps being inventive and challenging throughout its running time.
While its sharpness has been considerably blunted at some times, I was intrigued and hooked every at second of the movie.
I didn't find the ending was rushed, rather I found it reasonably funny, if not completely satisfying.
I'm really surprised at how Terry Gilliam take advantage of almost every silly situation or gag to reuse it later in the movie. He's a real genius!
Simply, Monty Python and the Holy Grail is the godfather of parody films!
Monty Python And The Holy Grail
It has an eerie comic tone that may not be palpable to everyone along with its way of conveying the tale, and once the audience goes past that, it would just be jibber-jabber that tickles here and there. The makers being aware of the vision throughout the course of it is what helps install these little moments that may surprise more than amuse someone. Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones have done a decent work on some of the sequences while on some of it, they seemed a bit distracted. On performance level, the actors are hilarious among the supporting cast and even cameos, that marks their impression in a finite screen time. Monty Python And The Holy Grail is a feature that takes its joke very seriously and clears out the priorities within its first few minutes but considering as a whole project, it is unfortunately forgettable.
Una irónica historia que satiriza de manera muy imaginativa, original y acertada al cine de época en una divertida historia ideal para aquel conocedor de cine.
