Jodorowsky's Dune

The failed adaptation of Frank Herbert's science fiction novel by the eccentric director of legendary cult film El Topo is examined in this well-made documentary. Featuring original storyboards, drawings, a couple of sandworms, and modern animations, we get a glimpse at what might have been if the doomed film was completed. Jodorowsky himself is magnetic and fascinating, as he recounts the time he yelled at Pink Floyd for eating Big Macs and offered a role to Salvador Dali that paid $100,000 a minute.
