John’s Pick: Jodorowsky’s Dune

Picture of JohnThe documentary Jodorowsky’s Dune chronicles the cult filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky’s mid-70’s attempt to mount an adaptation of Frank Herbert’s classic SF novel Dune.  Jodorowsky is a magnetic raconteur, detailing plans (A score by Pink Floyd!  Designs by Moebius!  Casting Salvador Dali and Mick Jagger in roles!) that suggest a fascinating divergence from the eventual 1984 David Lynch film.
