The story of Alejandro Jodorowsky's journey to make his version of DUNE intrigued me for
many reasons. Every day, countless film projects wither away and die before being fully
realized. Usually all that's left are some screenplay drafts and perhaps a wish list of
actors. Rarely do you encounter a project that was so very close to being fully realized.
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. This is not
the story of a failure. In fact, it's just the opposite -- it is the story of an artist who turns a
potential negative into a grand success and moves forward with an unending evolution of ideas
and drive, well into his 80s.
This is a film about a unique ambition: the ambition to change the world through art.
