I’m taking a break here by moving to a review of a most unusual film about an unusual film that never was. Perhaps the archetypical Nevermade movie, Alejandro Jodorowsky’s attempt to make Dune in the 70’s. This is “Jodorowsky’s Dune.”
SHORT REVIEW: Must-watch film for media historians, writers, and filmmakers. Be warned of some odd and offensive language, however.
- A fascinating exploration of the unmade 1976 Dune.
- Provides insights on how the unmade movie seeded other ideas and brought people together.
- Some parts may be offensive, including a creative/rape metaphor that I found pretty horrible.
- It’s one-sided, focusing mostly on Jodorowsky.
