“Things like 'mad as a hatter' or 'grinning like a Cheshire cat', are so powerful that music and songs incorporate the imagery. Writers, artists, illustrators, a lot of them have incorporated that.” This quote by Tim Burton perfectly sums up his own Cinematic style in one quote. He uses many cinematic elements to make his movies, especially music, lighting and color, and camera angles, all to tell us more than the dialogue does. Burton made his first movie in 1985 and has made upwards of 40 films since then.

The film adaptation of the religious musical Godspell composed Stephen Schwartz and John-Michael Tebleak attempts to revitalize Christianity by expressing the teachings of Christ as expressed in the Gospel of Matthew in contemporary terms. Structured through parables primarily sung but also enacted through puppetry, storytelling, and skits; the main point of the film is to translate complex philosophical ideas into terms easily understood by a modern-day audience.

The play/film accomplishes the same task, but because Godspell is set thousands of years later, the details of the stories are once again modernized to the intended audience. The
Darrel’s return stage in the novel consists of many inferences, as we don’t know the end to his journey that will allow the reader to see the final steps.

After that, he experiences his rescue from without in which he is brought back to his old life by powerful guides, which are most likely Ponyboy and Soda, as they feel they have been raised well by him and don’t
