Lunatics of Dune

Specifically, one lunatic. I am of course referring to director Alejandro Jodorowsky who was going to make a Dune movie in the mid-’70s, and who is so fucking insane that he makes David Lynch look like Nora Ephron. Jodorowsky’s film was obviously never made, but someone is making a documentary on what his plans for the movie were; the first trailer is above, where Jodorowsky unveils his simple idea to “create a prophet” to all the young people of the world. I doubt Jodorowsky’s Dune would have been any more accurate than Lynch’s version, but holy shit it would have been something to see. I’m glad we’re finally going to get this look at what might have been, at least. (Via Twitch)
