Plot Outline:

Alejandro Jodorowsky is a cult filmmaker best known for his surrealistic tales El Topo, The Holy Mountain and Santa Sangre. Yet in the mid 1970s, he attempted to create his masterpiece - adapting Frank Herbert's 1965 novel, Dune, to the big screen. Spending $2 million to convince the likes of artist H.R. Giger, Salvador Dali, actor Orson Welles and musician Mick Jagger and to help in creating his epic, he failed to convince investors (and a purported hours long running time didn't help) and in the end was a failed vision. But the director still has his Dune bible - and we get a glimpse of what could have been. -- Chris Kavan

Jodorowsky's 'Dune' is probably the most fascinating film that was never made. This is not because of it's giant space opera story based on a hefty series of heady sic-fi novels. The reason stems from the sheer amount of imagination, creative audacity, and wonderment that comes with Jodorowsky's vision. This documentary chronicles the attempt to bring that film to life and what it meant for all of cinema. There is commentary about the studio system, as well as thoughtful insight into the creative process. Jodorowsky has so many inspiring quotes. You could adapt his words for any personal ambition. I can't recall another documentary that instilled a creative energy and made me want to accomplish something with it.

Der grösste Science Fiction Film aller Zeiten

Jodorowsky's Dune ist ein Rückblick auf einen Film, der nie gemacht wurde: Den grössten und wildesten Science Fiction Film aller Zeiten! Diese Doku zeigt nun die ganze Liebe, die Jodorowsky und sein Team in das Projekt Dune stecken. Jodorowsky's Dune macht deutlich, wie inspirierend dieses nicht realisierte Meisterwerk noch immer ist! Eine schöne Träumerei für Geeks. Jodorowsky versuchte jahrelang, Frank Herberts Roman "Dune" auf die Leinwand zu bringen. Sicher, wir wissen, dass ers nie geschafft hat, aber die Vorstellung... Jodorowsky selbst verhält sich im Gespräch sehr ehrlich und weicht keiner Frage aus. Auf die Version von Lynch angesprochen, nennt er sie unumwunden "terrible". 1973 begann die Entwicklung als Jodorowsky noch an seinen religiösen Allegorien arbeite...
