Half family drama, half fantastical kiddie odyssey, it is ultimately unsatisfying as either.
This movie made a huge impression on me as a youngman and is still relevent today as we are discussing the place of privilege in our society.
This is the story from Wagner's Ring Cycle of Operas.
Its more then 50 years older then Lord of the Rings. And its based on an ancient germanic folk story.
I come back to this movie every decade or so of my life, and I always walk away in love with it again.
While in content it might diverge a bit from standard canon, in its soul i have always felt it was the BEST and truest to the essence telling of the Christ story ever made.
Jesus after all, WAS a peace-loving, communal-living, drug-sharing hippie. (What drugs you ask? I remind you that the drug of choice in the time and place was alcohol, and refer you to a certain marriage scene in Cana.)
JC Superstar is a far more impressive literary work. But Godspell to me says it all without the confusion and pretension that has crept in in the past 2000 years.
