The greatest sci-fi film you never saw! Alejandro's vision was really way ahead of it's time but didn't stop film companies keeping his entire story panel and using it for a cheat sheet for pretty much every sci-fi film that came after. It's tragic as it goes on that he really put his entire soul into this imaging of Dune with a well shot documentary with animation bringing at least a small vision to our eyes to see.
My relationship with Jodorowsky's movies is always some combination of misunderstanding, mild anger, and general wtf-ness but he is a rare animal who genuinely believes in the power of art that has to be free of constraints. His Dune would have been one of the weirdest movies we will never be able to see.
Jodorowsky's Dune ist ein Rückblick auf einen Film, der nie gemacht wurde: Den grössten und wildesten Science Fiction Film aller Zeiten! Diese Doku zeigt nun die ganze Liebe, die Jodorowsky und sein Team in das Projekt Dune stecken... die ganze Rezension sowie die für uns relevantesten Film Dokus gibts auf der Seite unserer Videothek cinegeek.de
I wouldn't have minded if this film were twice as long, or more. Getting to listen to Jodorowsky speak about his life and work, his views on art and creativity, his passion for cinema, and, of course, his most legendary failed production, is an absolute privilege. Inspiring and heartbreaking at the same time.
