Maybe someday – sometime long after Jodorowsky passes away perhaps – we may see his vision, or, at least a version of his vision, take shape on our screens. Until then, Jodorowsky’s Dune, a documentary by Frank Pavich, is the closest thing.
If you have any interest in film as a purely spiritual medium go see Jodorowsky’s Dune now. He is a true artist, unwilling to compromise his values – which is the very reason Dune was never made. This man put so much into this film, and inspired so many others to do the same. It feels truly like a crime that Dune is unlikely to ever come to life in Jodorowsky’s lifetime. But his work wasn’t all for nothing. We have this story.
