Overview

Filmmaker Frank Pavich explores one of cinema's great "what ifs" in this documentary detailing Alejandro Jodorowski's aborted feature adaptation of Frank Herbert's celebrated sci-fi novel DUNE. With the release of EL TOPO (1971) and its psychedelic follow-up THE HOLY MOUNTAIN (1973), Jodorowski became not only a pioneer of psychedelic surrealism in film, but also the father of the "Midnight Movie". Following the success of those two films, the Chilean director began focusing all of his energies on translating DUNE to the big screen. The film was to star Jodorowski's own son Brontis in a stunning cast that included Orson Welles, David Carradine, Mick Jagger, and Salvador Dali, with Pink Floyd providing the score, and art direction by HR Geiger and Jean "Moebius" Giraud. Two years into the massive production, however, the film was suddenly and unceremoniously cancelled. Yet even today, numerous relics of that ambitious production - including thousands of enticingly vivid storyboards - still exist. In this film, Pavich offers a movie lovers a tantalizing glimpse at a masterpiece that was never meant to be.

Editorial Reviews

A.V. Club 03-20-2014 "Pavich’s film is less about ruminating on what might have been than asking why it’s important to create. Jodorowsky’s opus found its place in the cosmos, even without existing." -- Grade: B+
Los Angeles Times 03-20-2014 "We may never know if the midnight movie maestro's DUNE would have been a game-changer or a head-scratcher. But the documentary about it is speculative catnip for cineastes of all stripes."
RogerEbert.com 03-25-2014 3 stars out of 4 -- "[I]t's warm and inspirational: a call to arms for dreamers everywhere."
