Jodorowsky's Dune

Indulging one of film history?s more entertaining 'what might have been' stories, first-timer Frank Pavich delivers his own mind-blowing cult movie.
-Peter Debruge, Variety
Jodorowsky is such a natural showman and irrepressible egotist that his ancient anecdotes never become tedious.
-Stephen Dalton, The Hollywood Reporter
Pavich's film is a testament to the power of motion pictures as metaphysical experience.

Synopsis

In 1975, Chilean director Alejandro Jodorowsky, whose films EL TOPO and THE HOLY MOUNTAIN launched and ultimately defined the midnight movie phenomenon, began work on his most ambitious project yet. Starring his own 12 year old son Brontis alongside Orson Welles, Mick Jagger, David Carradine and Salvador Dali, featuring music by Pink Floyd and art by some of the most provocative talents of the era, including HR Giger and Jean ‘Moebius’ Giraud, Jodorowsky’s adaptation of Frank Herbert’s classic sci-fi novel DUNE was poised to change cinema forever.
