Mel Brooks, a genius filmmaker

Mel BrooksImage via Wikipedia

After having great fun with "High Anxiety", I started looking for Mel Brooks' films. "History of the world: part 1" just proved my impression of him, he really is a genius filmmaker! He is not only one of greatest filmmakers, but also a great thinker. He put some very serious subjects into comedies and made your laugh and think at the same time.

Watch these clips and see if you would laugh:

  1. I am in total agreement. And laughter is a potent antidote for the ridiculous lies that cruel religious 'leaders' have planted in so many kindly and thoughtful people of all colours and creeds.

    In my unjustifiably humble opinion!
