From its opening multi-language titles (that sure looks like Swedish) to the closing arrest of the entire Dark Ages cast by modern-day bobbies, Monty Python and the Holy Grail helped to define "irreverence" and became an instant cult classic. This time the Pythonites savage the legend of King Arthur, juxtaposing some excellently selected exterior locations with an unending stream of anachronistic one-liners, non sequiturs, and slapstick set pieces. The Knights of the Round Table set off in search of the Holy Grail on foot, as their lackeys make clippety-clop sounds with coconut shells. A plague-ridden community, ringing with the cry of "bring out your dead," offers its hale and hearty citizens to the body piles. A wedding of convenience is attacked by Arthur's minions while the pasty-faced groom continually attempts to burst into song. The good guys are nearly thwarted by the dreaded, tree-shaped "Knights Who Say Ni!" A feisty enemy warrior, bloodily shorn of his arms and legs in the thick of battle, threatens to bite off his opponent's kneecap.
Documentary examining the possible whereabouts of the ancient Christian relic, reputed to be the cup that Jesus drank from at the Last Supper and that received His blood at the Crucifixion. In 2014, historian Margarita Torres discovered two Arabic parchments recording the journey of Christ's cup from Jerusalem to Spain in 1055. One parchment states that the cup arrived in Spain with a piece missing. The onyx cup in Leon's San Isidora basilica matches this description. In Leon, Torres finds further evidence that this may be the Holy Grail in a medieval painting of the Supper.
