When I was a kid, you could count on two annual showings on tv - The Wizard of Oz and Jesus Christ Superstar. Growing up Catholic, JCS was the coolest Jesus movie we could see - a bunch of hippies rocking out in Jerusalem. Yeah baby.
As I got older, I began to totally dig the musical aspect. The different time signatures, many catchy tunes, the whaling voices of Jesus and Judas, and almost everyone else who opens their mouths for that matter.
Then later I got into what the film is really about, which to me is the struggle to do what you know is right, or is your destiny, even though it may cost you dearly. In JCS, of course, it is Jesus struggling with laying his life down when he is not sure why he needs to do it. And Judas struggling with whether to turn Jesus in or not. Whether you are religious or not, it's a great film about humanity.
No moment captures this struggle more potently than this clip. Turn it up and dig it:
