Jodorowsky's Dune (2013)

A documentary in which Alejandro Jodorowsky talks about his ambitious film version of Frank Herbert's Dune novel (1965). You've not seen the finished film because unfortunately it never went into production. If it had, it could've been magical and glorious, or at the very least spectacularly disastrous. Jodorowsky had gathered together a sparkling reservoir of creative people to help him realise his vision, including artists Chris Foss, HR Giger and Jean 'Moebius' Giraud. If you're a Dune nut like I am, then it's essential viewing.
