In 1975, Chilean director Alejandro Jodorowsky, whose films launched and ultimately defined the midnight movie phenomenon, began work on his most ambitious project yet: an adaptation of Frank Herbert's classic sci-fi novel DUNE was poised to change cinema forever. For two years, Jodo and his team of "spiritual warriors" worked night and day on the massive task of creating the fabulous world of DUNE: over 3,000 storyboards, numerous paintings, incredible costumes, and an outrageous, moving and powerful script. In the words of Jodorowsky's producer, Michel Seydoux, "It should have been enough. But it wasn't."
Documentary - This documentary about an aborted screen version of the popular
science fiction novel Dune is aimed at die hard film fans,
particularly genre film fans, and will have limited appeal beyond
that niche. There are some violent scenes and nudity taken from
clips of director Alejandro Jodorowsky's previous films.
