Perhaps as an antidote to Mel
Gibson's The Passion of the Christ,
Monty Python's comedy classic The Life
of Brian, a satire of those who blindly
follow religious doctrine and
Hollywood's depiction of all things bib-
lical, is being re-released in honor of its
25th anniversary. The film is set in the
Holy Land in 33 C.E.; at the center of
the chaos is Brian Cohen (Graham
Chapman), a reluctant would-be messi-
ah who rises to prominence as a result of
absurd circumstances that parallel the
life of Christ. It opens Friday, May 21,
at the Main Art Theatre in Royal Oak.
