The poor man’s Jesus Christ Superstar is utterly ridiculous in every way – a Jesus who looks more like Jeremy Irons in Play Away mode (or even Jerry Hayes when he’s sporting a weskit), Michael Sundin as John the Baptist (apparently), and a vision of the dawning of Christianity as a bunch of daft sub-Hippie clown mime artists arsing about in a scrapyard, before a Pharisee turns up, in the guise of a demonic variation on the computer off of Chips Comic, and it all ends with the most rubbish use of split screen ever seen this side of Top of the Pops circa 1980. In short, it’s got the lot.
