The greatest science fiction movie never made
Shot in France, England, Switzerland and the United States, this documentary covers director Alejandro Jodorowsky (El Topo, Holy Mountain, Santa Sangre) and his 1974 Quixotic attempt to adapt the seminal sci-fi novel Dune into a feature film. After spending 2 years and millions of dollars, the massive undertaking eventually fell apart, but the artists Jodorowsky assembled for the legendary project continued to work together. This group of artists, or his “warriors” as Jodorowsky named them, went on to define modern sci-fi cinema with such films as Alien, Blade Runner, Star Wars and Total Recall.

A rather slow but somewhat entertaining look into a crazy mans grandiose vision.

Jodorowsky is totally off his rockers...but in a good way. A mad storyteller with an insane vision of a movie that would apparently replace LSD as the drug of choice for the youth that era. Insane?!? You bet!!

The conclusions to this documentary are also totally insane, and they didn't sit well with me at all, but big egos tend to make themselves more important than what they really are.

Enjoyable watch...

Ultimately, the documentary really makes you wish that Jodorowsky's version of Dune had pushed through. It would have been vastly different from the original novel, but I think it would have amazing in its own way.
