Director: Frank Pavich. 90 min. Rated PG-13. USA/France. Documentary.
The story of "The Greatest Movie Never Made". In 1975, before David Lynch's crappy adaptation, mad Chilean director Alejandro Jodorowsky was to create the epic space-opera Dune, a 12-20 hour film based on Frank Herbert's famous novel. He'd employed "warriors" such as Dan O'Bannon, H.R. Giger, Pink Floyd (for the soundtrack), and Salvador Dali, Orson Welles and Mick Jagger (as actors). It was the sci-fi phenomenon to change movie history before Star Wars did. But then the project fell apart - and later exuded into Alien, BladeRunner, Contact, Prometheus ... in decades to come. A must-see for any film history fan.
