In a delicious blending of high and low culture, the Getty is screening Monty Python’s Life of Brian at 7:30 tomorrow night as part of a three-film “Imagining Christ” series this weekend. The two films bookending LoB are Buñuel’s Simon of the Desert at 4pm and a Canadian film, Jesus of Montreal, on Sunday at 4pm. You can make reservations for any of the three (or all) at the Getty’s site. Personally, I think Life of Brian is one of the funniest films ever made. And if the Getty crowd can rouse themselves to whistle along with the ending I’ll consider it a peak cinematic experience.
