Jodorowsky’s Dune

“Would Jodorowsky’s Dune have been the radical, paradigm-shifting movie its would-be makers envisioned? With Dali as the Emperor, Welles as the Baron, David Carradine as Duke Leto, Mick Jagger as Feyd … would it have been a vast, hallucinatory experience or a gigantic folly?”
Jodorowsky’s Dune: the triumph of imagination, by Kenneth George Godwin, Cagey Films, June 11, 2014

“…Dali as the Emperor, Welles as the Baron, David Carradine as Duke Leto, Mick Jagger as Feyd…” Yes! Salvador Dali and Orson freaking Welles. Also Mobius, Chris Foss, H.R. Giger, and Dan O’Bannon. Dear God, whatever did we miss that this never got made? Hollywood, the enemy of… something. At least there’s a documentary.
