A Liar's Autobiography
Monty Pythons assemble

It's two sleeps before this year's BFI London Film Festival kicks off in earnest and excitement is building in these parts at the feast of movie delights packed into 12 days around the big smoke.

This year Empire is joining the fun with its own gala screening on October 16. It's A Liar's Autobiography - The Untrue Story Of Monty Python's Graham Chapman, a semi-factual jaunt through the life of the Python that could just be cinema's first lie-opic.

Here's an exclusive new clip that features the voices of Chapman himself and John Cleese; the former recorded before his death in Harry Nilsson's studio, the latter recently in a series of specially organised sessions. As the film's trailer demonstrates, this should be an animation that's quite unlike anything you've seen before.



A Liar's Autobiography is out on January 25 via Trinity. In the meantime, there's fun to be had on the film's new website.
