  • Monty Python Live (Mostly) 2014

    ★★★ Watched 24 Jul, 2014 6

    Watched over a few days due to work, the end missing off of my recording of the show which thankfully meant I could see the bit's missed due to Gold's bizarre decision to show this live which meant censorship was inevitable. (penis cannons spewing out white foam got through though hilariously)

    The show itself was never going to be as polished as we all would want it to be and had far too many song and dance numbers but ended…

    Four years after In Bruges Martin McDonagh returns to deliver a truly bonkers farce filled with wonderful meta-humour carried excellently by maybe the best ensemble cast this year.

    Hilarious dialogue that I've been quoting since i got out of the cinema, just as good as In Bruges at times. Rockwell steals the whole thing with an energetic and mad performance. Gets all the best lines and orchestrates the best scene in the film. His campfire tale is a colossus that…
