Justify My Netflix: Monty Python: Almost the Truth

(Like many Netflix customers, I too can get quite lax with the timely watching and returning of my movies, which of course defeats the entire purpose of having a flat-rate rental plan in the first place. To combat that, I am now writing standardized mini-reviews of each and every movie I end up watching through Netflix, both instantly and on DVD. Don't forget, all previous 'Justify My Netflix' reviews can be found on CCLaP's main movie page.)

Monty Python: Almost the Truth

Today's movie: Monty Python: Almost the Truth, 2009 (Amazon | IMDB | Netflix | Wikipedia)

Why I added it to my queue: Because this new six-part documentary is the most comprehensive and thorough one yet regarding the greatest comedy troupe in history, originally airing earlier this year here in the US on the IFC cable channel, which is why you'll have to rent it out if you don't have cable.

The reality: Not much to say here -- it's simply excellent, well-done, and highly illuminating, a must-see for anyone who considers themselves a Python fan.

Strangest piece of trivia: This is the first time in twenty years that all five surviving members of Monty Python have agreed to participate in a project together.

Worth your time? Ni! Ni ni ni!
