A Vida de Brian, do Monty Python, não existiria no século 21
É o que disse o Terry Jones acha, como disse em uma entrevista:
But Jones told the Radio Times: “I never thought it would be as controversial as it turned out, although I remember saying when we were writing it that some religious nut case may take pot shots at us, and everyone replied: ‘No’.”
The 69-year-old said: “I took the view it wasn’t blasphemous. It was heretical because it criticised the structure of the church and the way it interpreted the Gospels. At the time religion seemed to be on the back burner and it felt like kicking a dead donkey. It has come back with a vengeance and we’d think twice about making it now.”
Asked whether he would make a similarly satirical film about Muslims, he said: “Probably not – looking at Salman Rushdie [whose controversial book The Satanic Verses forced him into hiding for 10 years].
“I suppose people would be frightened. I think it’s whipped up by the arms industry.”
