About the 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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Pavich shows us many images from the storyboard, and even treats some to a simple form of animation to suggest how the movie might have looked.
Fresh: Is Alejandro Jodorowsky's "Dune" the most influential movie never made?
Fresh: A deeply moving testament to single-minded, indefatigable commitment of creative vision and to an almost spiritual ability to let that vision go, thereby allowing it to exist in the world in an entirely unexpected form.
Fresh: Frank Savich's diverting documentary lets the 85-year-old filmmaker revisit a saga from the mid-'70s: his stellar two-year failure to adapt Frank Herbert's Dune for the screen.
Good insight into artistic temperament
Tragic that Jodorowskys limitations could not align with the greater forces of the hollywood system to realise his vision
It's damn shame it never got made. Someone has to make it!
