‘Life of Brian’ (1979) – set in 33 CE (8/8)

Okay, Life of Brian isn’t always a technology-fiction film. It’s a little sneaky to imply it’s far. The traditional Monty Python movie is a comedy with a historical placing, taking vicinity at some point of the Jesus’ lifestyles, and that specialize in a man named Brian, whose own life takes a flip towards the unlucky when he turns into incorrect for the Messiah (in reality, he is actually simply a completely naughty boy.)

But: there’s a scene wherein Brian falls into an alien spaceship, and for a quick and exceedingly surreal short time, he’s whisked around space earlier than being ejected from the craft, simplest to become right back where he became “kidnapped.” He would not suppose a good deal of it, nor does he inform every person about it. It’s no longer addressed later inside the film. But during that short and out-of-this-international scene, this movie – set some 2000 years in the past – transforms right into a technology-fiction movie. For the sheer audacity of that scene alone, it deserves a mention.
