Monty Python's Flying Circus: Terry Gilliam's Personal Best

Monty Python's Flying Circus: Terry Gilliam's Personal Best

DVD

Overview

Here it is -- the ultimate collection of Terry Gilliam's animation for Monty Python's Flying Circus gathered together in one drop-dead funny package. Terry Gilliam's Personal Best is a monumental release that bests all of the other Python collections out there thanks to its definitive nature. Inside, viewers will find everything from the classic "Killer Cars" sketch to the stalking ambulance gag -- singled out in the documentary from Gilliam as one of his best. The famed director also supplies some brand-new animation that only adds to the brilliance of the release. It is probably not recommended to watch almost the full hour of clips in one sitting -- one risks death from laughing or at the very least, a seizure -- though it is quite hypnotic once it starts. Be sure to pay attention to the quiz included in the extras, as there's a special treat for anyone who gets all 15 answers right.
