BFI COMEDY GENIUS SEASON… Monty Python and The Holy Grail
The kings of being awfully silly took on the Arthurian legend in their first film from 1975. Despite struggling for funding throughout production Python turned their money woes into enduring moments of pop culture. They couldn’t afford horses, so they clopped together coconuts and they didn’t budget for a battle so the film crescendos with a postmodern side swipe that is born from inventive Python genius as much as economic necessity. A quintessentially British anarchic parody that has aged perfectly since its original release.
