I was gong to as well until I found out that the UK version will have more than the US. According to Amazon as it stands now they are listing it as Monty Python: Almost The Truth whereas in the UK they are listing it as Monty Python: Almost The Truth-The Lawyer's Cut with almost 100 minutes more footage.

Ooh! That's going to be the one to get if it's region-free, then.

Is this the documentary that also has a lot of comedians talking about how they were influenced by the Pythons and their antics, or is that a different Python documentary?

Review



October 2009 sees the celebration of the 40th Anniversary of the first broadcast of Monty Python's Flying Circus by BBC TV in 1969. Almost The Truth: The Lawyer's Cut tells the story of Monty Python through brand new interviews with the Pythons: John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin and archive material from the late Graham Chapman. A host of others also contribute to putting the Python legacy in context including: Phil Jupitus, Bruce Dickinson, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Russell Brand, Steve Coogan, Stephen Merchant, Dan Aykroyd, Nick Mason, Tim Roth, Simon Pegg, Eddie Izzard and more. The six programmes, each an hour long, combine the interviews with a generous helping of clips from pre-Python material, the original Flying Circus TV series, the films: Monty Python & The Holy Grail, Monty Python's Life Of Brian and Monty Python's Meaning Of Life and their classic live performance at the Hollywood Bowl. This is the only official, authorised programme to commemorate Monty Python's 40th birthday.

Episodes Comprise:

1. The Not-So-Interesting Beginnings
2. The Much Funnier Second Episode
3. And Now, The Sordid Personal Bits
4. The Ultimate Holy Grail Episode
5. Lust For Glory!
6. Finally! The Last Episode (Ever) (For now...)

I remember seeing a trailer for this - this looks really great. I hope the UK version is region free...
