This film is a hilarious account of the highs and lows of the extraordinary life story of Monty Python's Graham Chapman. Starring as himself and reunited with Monty Python's John Cleese, Michael Palin, Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones for the first time in 23 years, we discover Chapman, from his childhood days as a pipe-smoking baby and student at Cambridge University, to becoming a Python, discovering his homosexuality and battling alcoholism, via moving to LA where he parties to excess, and right up until the moment when he rather selfishly drops dead in 1989.
Using ground-breaking animation and complete with a healthy dose of profanity, blasphemy and gratuitous name-dropping, this film is a biopic on Chapman's bizarre life and search for self-knowledge. Incredible, yes. Surreal, certainly. True, who knows?
