A LIAR'S AUTOBIOGRAPHY – THE UNTRUE STORY OF MONTY PYTHON'S GRAHAM CHAPMAN
Fifteen animation studios bring to life the creatively embellished autobiography of Monty Python's Graham Chapman. Chapman's charismatic voice is front and center, despite his untimely demise from cancer in 1989, thanks to recently unearthed books-on-tape audio that he recorded at friend Harry Nilsson's studio. Fellow Pythons John Cleese, Michael Palin, Terry Jones and Terry Gilliam chime in as well, as Chapman recounts his early years in post-WWII England (as a pipe-smoking infant); his time at Cambridge, where he first performed with Cleese, medical school, where he came out as a gay man (or at least 70% gay, based on a poll of himself) and his high times as a famous Python.
