Monty Python - A Critical Review
The film assesses in detail the reasons for Pythons' successes and failures and surveys the lasting impact of this British institution. Also featured are extensive insights from Neil Innes, the Pythons' warm up man, stand-in and minstrel. Neil, along with Douglas Adams, was one of the only two outsiders to contribute material to the Python TV series. The DVD compares extensive surviving examples of the early work of the Pythons working in separate camps with the mature TV series and films produced by the group as a whole.
The DVD is accompanied by a highly detailed 72 page book featuring a thorough review of the work of Monty Python on television, on record, on stage and on film, tracing the group's profound influence upon British and American comedy.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", "Region free", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
