Jesus Christ Superstar

After a fling at being Stanley Donen in Fiddler on the Roof, director Norman Jewison surfaced as Ken Russell in this frenetic, all-too-often rhetorical, machine gun/tank/airplane-strewn Saint Vitus's dance in the desert. The music quickly becomes monotonous, and the operatic dialogue is silly right from the start—but Carl Anderson as Judas and Joshua Mostel as an unbelievably campy King Herod almost make this 1973 film worth sitting through. 103 min.
