A doc about the movie that never was. I wasn't really familiar with all the details of this unmade film so it was a pretty fun ride for me to watch this. Unlike The Man from La Mancha where I got the feeling that if Gilliam had succeeded in finishing the movie it probably would've been terrible, I cannot imagine how amazing Jodorowsky's Dune would've been. Salvador Dali and Orson Welles in a movie together!? Pink Floyd soundtrack!? Dan O'Bannon and H.R. Giger doing a space movie before Star Wars!? It's really inconceivable to run the "what if..." permutations on this.
The movie itself is great and really well done. They got fantastic interviews with Jodorowsky (who I will want to call Hodor from now on) and did a great job of visualizing everything. One of the my faves from the festival.
