About this movie

The tale of Jodorowsky and his Dune is a fascinating trip through creativity and imagination, a story about the relentless pursuit of a dream, and the necessity of art. In pre-production for over two years, the film was to star Jodorowsky's own 12-year-old son Brontis alongside Orson Welles, Mick Jagger, David Carradine and even Salvador Dali, set to a musical score by Pink Floyd and art-design by some of the most provocative talents of the era, including H.R. Giger and Jean 'Moebius' Giraud.

I would have loved to watch the movie he saw in his head. It seems like it was one of the most avant garde, psychedelic sci fi movies ever. If it were made back then,, I don't see how it would have been possible to pull off his vision. It is cool to get a glimpse into his creative and passionate mind.

Everything about this failed attempt at recreating the great Frank Herbert's "Dune" for the big screen looked amazing. Amazing production crew who would later go on to make one of the most influential sci-fi films of all time, Alien. Jodorowsky's Dune was absolutely huge in scope, massive. Being the first film of it's kind and as ambitious as it was, it's not hard to see how and why film studios were afraid of it.

Imagine what life would be like if this movie happened and we never had Star Wars, Alien, etc. All-star production way ahead of its time and you can trace the direct influence it had just from the storyboard concepts that found their way directly into other projects frame by frame.
