Directed by FRANK PAVICH

Alejandro Jodorowsky (director of such cult phantasmagorias as EL TOPO and THE HOLY MOUNTAIN) optioned Frank Herbert’s sci-fi classic Dune in 1975. His famously unmade film is recounted in passionate, hilarious stories that recreate his search for collaborators/“spiritual warriors” (Orson Welles, Mick Jagger, Salvador Dali, Pink Floyd, H.R. Giger) and feature massive tomes of fabulous drawings and designs that constitute the film’s script

REVIEWS

“Critics’ Pick.” 
– The New York Times

“Grade: A. “What if? That question hangs like a glorious riddle over Frank Pavich’s spellbinding documentary. If you enjoy sci-fi, cult cinema, or messianic quests by quixotic lunatics, you will love this movie.”
– Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly

“*****! [5 stars]
Critics’ Pick.
“A legendary never-shot epic, a messianic adventure. Frank Pavich’s fun documentary captures an unbowed, exuberant Jodorowsky.”

– Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York

“Fascinating. Vivid. Makes the case for the thwarted project’s deep influence on generations of science-fiction filmmakers.”
– Steve Dollar, Wall Street Journal

“The stuff of cinephile lore – a crazy myth about a crazy idea.”
– Bilge Ebiri, Rolling Stone

“A movie-lover’s dream of a doc.”
–  Daily News

“If even a fraction of Jodorowsky’s claims are true, his DUNE would have been an astounding film.”
–Peter Debruge, Variety

“I was raping Frank Herbert, but like this, with love.”
– Jodorowsky
