Jesus Christ Superstar [DVD] [2000]

This DVD is the first of two editions, the second issued in 2001. This single-layer, widescreen letterbox (2.35:1) version has these audio options: English (Dolby Digital 5.0 Surround) and French (Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround), with subtitles in Spanish and English (captions). The picture is nonanamorphic, and it shows in the obvious digitalization and in the occasional blurs and motion artifacts throughout the film. The audio has been remastered but is lean on the bass, and jarring and more monaural-sounding than stereo. Special features on this edition include production notes, cast and filmmaker bios and filmographies, highlights from the film, and the theatrical trailer. A small glossy booklet inside the plastic case depicts two scenes and offers a chapter index.

Jesus Christ Superstar
Jesus Christ Superstar was Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's first international success, first as a top-selling concept album and then as a hit stage production. In 1996, a successful new production of the show was staged in London, and this home video release preserves this bold new adaptation of the show. In Jesus Christ Superstar, the story of Jesus (played by Glenn Carter) is retold in a modern setting from the perspective of Judas (Jerome Pradon), Christ's friend and disciple who becomes disillusioned and turns against Jesus when he becomes close friends with Mary Madgaline (Renee Castle), a prostitute. This television version was directed by Nick Morris and Gale Edwards in 2000. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
