What ties my recent posts with classic English silliness with great literature with liberal politics with recently viewed movies?
Fierce Creatures - about a killing at a zoo. A wonderful under-appreciated film, the essential follow-up to another ex-python masterpiece. Links to a classic book.
Splitting Heirs - this should have been another classic. Is the UK monarchy fundamentally different from the Indian caste system?
Free Willy - a great sentient beast spared from a life of captivity. A nob joke. And another classic book.
Pinocchio - compared to X-factor finalists like puppets strung along by the real talent.
A Knight's Tale - I did say this would start getting personal.
But all this proves is that the answer to nearly everything is in Monty Python.
