‘A Liar’s Autobiography: The Untrue Story of Monty Python’s Graham Chapman’ Trailer is Something Completely Different

A Liar's Autobiography

The trailer for A Liar’s Autobiography: The Untrue Story of Monty Python’s Graham Chapman is a lifetime of insanity squeezed into 2 minutes. It helps that the story seems to take a Python-like look at Monty Python, but the main absurdity comes from 17 different animation styles from 14 different animation houses. There isn’t a coherent-looking bit in the bunch, which might be what Chapman would have wanted, or it might just be a mess.

Excuse me. A bloody mess.

At any rate, it looks like a must-see for Python fans. Where else could you get this level of intimacy? Everyone from the group but Eric Idle was involved in doing voice over work for it and, assumably, providing insight. The main thrust comes from Chapman’s own writing, though, distilled into what looks like an R-rated retelling of a life that might just have a few embellishments. The big question is, of course:  What will his ashes think of this?

Check out the trailer for yourself:

A Liar’s Autobiography is playing TIFF this week and will see a limited US release on November 2, 2012.
