As a religious satire, “Life of Brian” centered on a Jewish man named Brian Cohen (played by Chapman) who was often mistaken as his neighbor, Jesus Christ. The film was met with protests from different religious groups at the time of its release in 1979, whilst some countries imposed a permanent ban on its screening.

However, “Life of Brian’s” notoriety only pushed the film’s popularity as a cult film. It became the highest grossing British movie outside of Britain and was always listed as one of the best comedy movies of all time.
