Jodorowsky's Dune

France, United States | 2013 | Frank Pavich

Jodorowsky's Dune

After directing the midnight/cult movie classics El Topo and The Holy Mountain, Chilean-French auteur Alejandro Jodorowsky turned his attention to a grand, multi-million-dollar film version of Frank Herbert's epic sci-fi novel Dune. With a cast consisting of Orson Welles, Salvador Dali, Mick Jagger, David Carradine, and others, art work by H.R. Giger and French comic book artist Moebius, special effects by Dan O'Bannon, and music by Pink Floyd, this was going to be a movie to remember. Unfortunately, for lack of financing, it was never made. But hundreds of drawings and sketches from the project still survive, and they are animated for this inspiring new documentary. Equally animated is the ebullient Jodorowsky, now 85, who walks us through his visionary masterpiece that might have been (which nevertheless influenced Star Wars, Alien, and other sci-fi films that followed).

90 min. Blu-ray. Unmissable! Jodorowsky’s latest film, The Dance of Reality, shows 7/18 & 19, and another documentary about an unfinished motion picture magnum opus, Persistence of Vision, shows 7/19 at 6:45.
