Jesus Christ Superstar Movie Review
WhileSuperstar is a period piece set during the last weeks of Jesus's life, it also contains strange anachronisms like guns and cars -- designed to tell us, presumably, that Jesus's works are still relevant today. But it also misses the point on a lot of those lessons -- why, during his rampage against the money changers, is he destroying the stands of people selling glassware and vegetables? Thou shalt not eat greens? Hmmm.
Overall: Some good songs, some interesting choreography, and some utterly forgotten actors.
