Bunny and I watched “A Liar's Autobiography: The Untrue
Story of Monty Python's Graham Chapman” and I must say—it's a
very odd film, even by Monty Python standards. Animated, in
fourteen different styles (some of it very beautifully done) with
most of Monty Python doing voice work (and no, it's not Graham Chapman that
isn't in it), it's a completely made up story of the life of Graham
Well, mostly made up. It does cover his homosexuality and drinking
problems. But everything else is made up. Well, except for him working for
Monty Python. But short of the homosexuality, the drinking problems, and
working with Monty Python, it's all made up. Except his name
really is Graham Chapman.
Okay, let me start over again.
Except for his name, his homosexuality, drinking problems and working
with Monty Python, the movie is completey and utterly false.
Except he did study to become a doctor.
Well, it's a very weird film and you should watch it because it's kind of
true, except when it isn't.
