EP: 93 Jodorowsky’s Dune A Documentary about Epic Artistic Ambition and Failure






The documentary Jodorowsky’s Dune is a film that attempts to deify the director and his offbeat canon, as well as document just how this passionate 85 year old directed “greatest movie never made.”
In 1975 Chilean Director Alejandro Jorowsky was on top of the world. The runaway success of his films El Topo and its sequel, The Holy Mountain had loaded his pockets with a ton of Euro Box office cash and garnered him a huge following among the weirdo artsy types. Because of this he was able to secure the rights to Frank Herbert’s science fiction novel “Dune.”
