its probably the most important work of inspiration that enabled the finest visual feats of cinema to come to fruition, blade runner, alien, star wars, the matrix. probably the most influential piece of work ever in cinema history, this film is a must watch for sci fi and movie fans everywhere.

As problematic as Lynch's film is, a Jodorowsky version would have been the cinematic equivalent of a brain-fried junky licking its own feces off its own fingers not even realizing what it's doing.

From what I understand, he wanted to have a robot in this version of Dune. Having a robot in Dune completely goes against almost everything Dune is supposed to be about.

A 16 hour film? I forget that episodic storytelling wasn't fully explored in the seventys. Maybe if he was born thirty years later, he would have been working for netlix.

Sometimes I wonder if it was _never_ meant be made. What if the gods of filmmaking thought it to be so good that all of cinema should share its brilliance?

So what's the story behind why it wasn't made
amarsatori (1 year ago)
+Jon Kimberson Jodorowsky's ideas can be found all over the place, especially in the sci-fi and fantasy genres. Desert scene storyboards were used for Tatooine in Star Wars. H. R. Giger, who had never worked on movies before, all of a sudden became a huge influence in Hollywood---a big example of that is his work in Ridley Scott's Alien. Perhaps the biggest effect was more generic---cinema became more daring and the idea of using a film's visual effects to convey feelings and atmosphere rather than just being a canvas for specific tangible objects became more widespread. Jodorowsky didn't start that, but he definitely opened the doors wide and Hollywood was willing to dabble with his revolutionary ideas in stuff even if it putting it all in one movie was too much for them.
Jon Kimberson (1 year ago)
+amarsatori what other movies did used his ideas
amarsatori (1 year ago)
Jon Kimberson Executive fuckery. Like the video says, studio producers were afraid of such a revolutionary and imaginative movie so it died due to lack of funding. Eventually though Hollywood used Jodorowsky's ideas and creations in many other movies, hence why it was so influential.

hollandscottthomas (1 year ago)

He should do an animated version of Dune. There's no limit with animation. Maybe even anime. Imagine Jodorowsky teaming up with Miyazaki. :O
Connor Lloyd (9 months ago)
No. No animated movie or Anime, it has to be live action. Think Doctor Strange visuals and some epic wide shots with costume/character design from the new Satr Wars trilogy and the feeling of the original Star Wars trilogy. (I know Star Wars may be a touchy subject) It would be excellent.
jmalmsten (1 year ago)
I agree that an Anime version based on the Jodorowsky work would be awesome (given the right production circumstances of course).... And I love Miyazakis work and Ghibli in general... But no... Ghibli is not the right studio for this project. This project needs a Madhouse or Studio 4C or Studio Khara or the likes... I'm just not sure Ghibli would really go for the Moebious/Giger designs.... But yeah. A big budget adaptation in anime form of Jodorowsky's take on Dune directed by Jodorowsky or someone equally... mad... Either as a TV-series or a series of films... That would be a dream combination I think.
Chauliodus (1 year ago)
More like Ryutaro Nakamura, the guy behing Lain and Ghost Hound.... except he died ;(

Miyazaki lacks the edge Moebius had, even though he was heavily inspired by him. Without Moebius you couldn't make this. Plus Giger is dead too.

Have George Lucas and Ridley Scott thanked Jodorowsky for his ideas in Dune yet? They obviously started taking full advantage of his film not being made. I smell a couple of copy cats.
Jarl Knudsen (1 month ago)
No one should ever thank that self-deluded hack.
Dovahkiff (1 year ago)
Paddy Magenis I wouldn't call Scott a copy cat since he has said many times that if it hadn't been for Dune he wouldn't have found Giger and that Alien wouldn't have been the same, if anything it's great that Jodorowsky had so much influence on sci-fi despite him not being able to make his film. Lucas on the other hand... Well he's a bit full of himself, and clearly he's not a great director/writer as we saw with his prequels. I don't know if I would call him a copy cat, he's just full of himself and doesn't care too admit that if it weren't for other great artists he couldn't have possibly created the masterpiece that was Star Wars.
Chazbot (3 years ago)
Udo Kier was cast as Piter de Vries. That would have been great. The greatest pervert actor since Peter Lorre.
Chazbot (3 years ago)
People knocking J's vision are missing the point. Yes, the movie would have been crazy, a travesty, a box-office bomb. But the passion and ambition that the production encompassed was so great that it acted like a great magic spell, and seeded a hundred wonderful projects. He's a madman and a wizard, and a true artist. And you can't kill an idea.
tripdefect87 (1 year ago)
Agreed, I felt totally filled with a fiery creativity after watching this for the first time. I even started writing a story inspired by Alejandro and various other European "dreamers"
Chazbot (2 years ago)
The second Dune book is pretty much all about the unbelievably powerful and prescient Paul trying to think his way out the mental trap of being a fearsome godhead and emperor. Nothing much else happens except for some very intricate political chicanery. There's no fighting and few spaceships.
Chazbot (2 years ago)
There was a sci-fi show but it was very glossy;  the CGI was plentiful and poor and I considered it poorly designed. So the Dune books are ready for another look. But I'm not sure the casual viewer would respond to how coldly they analyze the uses of power, or how damning they are of environmental abuse. You all know that Paul Atredes starts a galactic jihad, yes a JIHAD, that kills several billion people, and spend all his time fighting his murderous prophetic powers that push him relentlessly towards inhuman domination.
Tate Hildyard (2 years ago)
+Yuri PRIME Like I said. I see great potential   in this for a n HBO tv show. Even if they don't want to go the Jodorowski route, Dune would just make a great tv show in general.  And I mean a real tv show so don't bring up that sic-fi channel micro-budget miniseries.

77Avadon77 (3 years ago)
Too me I thought it was a little crazy that the supporting artists weren't reading or recommended to read the books of Dune. That made me pause when so many of them said they hadn't read the books. I understand that this was Jdorowskys impression but to not make use of the books, the best research material there is, seems foolish and a little bit arrogant and eccentric. I understand the idea of interpretation but if you're going off of what little Jodorwsky's giving you about the story then you probably don't have a whole lot to go on. In the end the studios probably felt he was just too much of a risk, too preachy, to much spiritual ideologies that may or may not have worked and too massive of a scale. Maybe they simply thought Jodorwsky wasn't grounded enough to pull off such a big production given that his prior work was, well, lets just say not all that well received. Face it, when you have 20million dollars to spend you want to give it to the best guy who you feel delivers the least risk. This is commercial art and it's an investment. If you want to do art with no risk, buy yourself a handycam and make Dune in your backyard with your own money. I can at least see where the studios were coming from. Still I would have loved to see, whether this was a bang or a bust, Jordowsky's Dune on the big screen.
77Avadon77 (3 years ago)
I went into this not knowing what to expect. Half way through the film I thought these people are crazy, perhaps brilliant, perhaps foolish. Whether you agree with the art or not, you have to admit that Jordowsky's way of creation, his leadership, his fortitude and his artistic expression are truly inspirational. I wish I could see Jodorwskys dune, but not made back the, made today because I think the special effects he needed were really for this era and his imagination was so far ahead of it's time. His movie back then would have made a cool animation, but today it could be done as a motion picture.
I-hate-Google (3 years ago)
oh my god after watching this documentary - I'm so glad Jodorowsky didn't get the money to make Dune. It would have been a total psychedelic travesty. Let's patiently wait for somebody great to come forward with an idea that is worth Frank Herbert's masterpiece.

Lord Vivec (3 years ago)
it would be interesting to ask the author himself. Anyway look up the videogame "dante's inferno", consider I'm Italian, what should I say about that? There's freedom of expression in arts, so (besides straight out plagiarism) everyone can make his own interpretations, and in fact it HAS to be so for arts to evolve and avoid stagnancy. When Michael Moore called his movie "Fahreneit 9/11" he didn't ask permission to Ray Bradbury, which got rightfully upset and IIRC he also sued him. That was plagiarism, this one here is free interpretation
Dan Slash (3 years ago)
Jodorowsky is pretty full of himself and he seems to be suffering from delusions of grandeur. But god I would have loved his adaptation of Dune.

confidence and arogance are very closely related but his enthusiasm for his projects leans more towards confidence than arrogance if you ask me. arrogance and confidence cannot exist on its own though, they are like ying and yang. the guy loved his work, it was his passion and it is infectious even to someone watching this documentary, imagine if he recruited you to be a part of his visionary works, how could you turn it down?

If only someone took a chance on the movie! I don't think his passion for the film is any different to any good director's passion for a project they know is going to be great. I think he's great, i he's such a colourful character! If only a studio executive had said, 'give him the money. So what if a few dim witted romantic comedies which are only ever star vehicles for performers who aren't good enough to be there anyway, don't get made!!' The only real mistake Jado made was letting all the studio executives in on what he wanted to do. He should of done a Kubrick, make out he was making a regular sci fi, then made a movie of depth that led to the sort of enlightenment he was hoping for.

Ça l'aurait été un gros tas de merde. Croyez-moi, je suis le plus grand fan de Dune qu'il y a, le film de Linch est bon, l'imagerie et l'ambiance est parfaite. son défaut est d'être fait à partir d'un livre trop dur à transporter dans un format de 2 heures.

For Those Who Search The Trailer's Soundtrack: . Source: https://www.facebook.com/myspacekraft/posts/10152856021117497 . What is the song title for what starts playing in Jodorowsky's Dune trailer at around 0:39/0:40 ? Was it ever released? Will it be part of the soundtrack ? Where can I buy or download it? I <3 it! SpacEKrafT the soundtrack for the film is in development and should be released sometime in 2015. a gate fold double LP is being considered as the release. the track you refer to should be on the soundtrack album. in the meantime you can hear all of the SpacEKrafT contributions to the film here. if you dig around on the site there are many other tracks that are in a similar soundscape. https://soundcloud.com/spacekraft/sets/featured-in-jodorowskys-dune ;)

Ryan Duty (3 years ago)
Freak Herbert's Dune is my favorite literary sci-fi series. Period. Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson's additions... not so much. Didn't necessarily understand the correlation of David Lynch's production as an interpretation of the original text , but it did inspire my thorough re-reading if said. Syfy Channel's miniseries was closer to my understanding of the books, but someone should have fired the costume director before production began. All that having been said: I think Jodorowsky's Dune would have negated any further productions and would have done so by blowing so many minds. Might have been the most amazing thing ever put on screen. Might have been the most confusing. I would love to have experienced it as Paul Muad'Dib did.

Never read the book or seen Lynch’s film but I would have liked to have seen it just for the visual aspect of the worlds and spacecraft’s and the talent attached to it that would have been amazing or bizarrely shit especially for a film in 75 that in any case is a film you have to watch.

what about a kickstarter to allow jodorowsky to finish his possible masterpiece ? Okay, orson welles, dali, giger and others are dead today but he had a vision of the book who was so accurate in my opinion that he can still shoot the movie now. There are many talented person now too and finally he will be able to use today's special effects to achieve his movie. I don't understand why this ... thing whatever it would be (the greatest movie in history / or a really really bad adaptation) never had a chance to be achieved... I'm just saying : give it a try
William Harper (3 years ago)
He seems like he wanted to piggy back on the greatest sci fi series of all time, and then piss on it once it got him far enough. So glad they didnt make this movie. The guy is so self centered its incredible. The guy changes how and why Paul is born...decides Duke Leto should have no penis due to a dancing accident or some crap, and then kills Paul and has the planet fly around sprinkling good feelings around the universe...what a steaming pile of shit. Go ahead painfully hip craft beer sippers....tell me why this isnt shit. Also the opinion of the loser who teaches your film studies class means exactly zero. 
MetalSlugzMaster (2 years ago)
+MilesTeg87 True, I don't have any sources that directly state how Frank Herbert felt about the screenplay.  I apologize for making it sound concretely so.  There's clues however, to make a reasonable assumption.  Frank Pavich, who directed the documentary has stated on interviews that Herbert and Jodo had a good relationship in the preproduction, so I'm assuming he did his homework and researched these matters as well as consulted the people involved back then.  Herbert is on record as being thrilled with Lynch's results, as he wanted a different take on Dune than his original literary vision.  I doubt it would have been different with Jodorowsky.
MilesTeg87 (2 years ago)
+MetalSlugzMaster How do you know that he didn't have any problems with that? Have not found a single reliable source.
MetalSlugzMaster (3 years ago)
Frank Herbert had no problem with Jodorowsky's adaptation.  Not surprising, since Herbert himself was no stranger to writing about heavenly bodies having consciousness (Whipping Star, Dosadi Experiment).  I don't think there's anything wrong with a screenplay not adhering to the original books and Jodorowsky's would have been a visually fascinating trainwreck.  If you wouldn't have wanted to see it, fine.  I for one, would.

Looking at his storyboard for the movie, I'm convinced this would have been a colossal failure. Costumes and colors of actors were wild and outlandish, Harkonnen looked like some kind of overweight transvestite.  Some of the guys involved admitted they never even read the book.  Too artsy, would have been more like Rocky Horror than Herbert's Dune.

Did you ever see the original drafts of the Star Wars canon? Equally ridiculous if not more. Once productions begins things start to settle like the flakes in a snow globe.

+Snooperking I will need to watch the documentary again but I think he said in relation to the 20 hour length he would not compromise on the length that if he wanted to make it 20 hours he would make it 20 hours. I would have just like to see it for the visual aspect at the time that like Metropolis and Blade Runner (I know I'll get hate for that) have become cult classics mainly due to the visual look of the film and the world they created and the accompanying musical score rather than the story. Can't say I was impressed with who Jodorowsky's choose for Dunes musical score  that is a big part of any movie that Hollywood scores are usually good but no music tracks were  produced for the film so I guess we will never know how the final score would have turned out.

When will somebody make Jodorowsky's version of Dune? This is a film waiting to be done. The other Dunes don't do it justice. I saw Lynch's Dune, it is good, but it is not the same. The fans want Jodorowsky's version. Why not make it now? Jodorowsky is still alive. We have amazing computer animation / visual effect capabilities today. With some work, you could even insert the actors of the 1970s, make them look younger and so on. Even the ones that passed away could be added to film. Would that not be a great challenge for visual effects today? Why not start with the concepts already done in 1970s by Jodorowsky and his team, and actually shoot the movie from there. Except do it even bigger and better, with today's visual effects. Hollywood, it's time to make this movie. The fans are waiting.

Really cool, the idea of an animated movie is not bad at all, i mean they can make the characters with the factions of Dalí and Wells and almost anyone, but it's sad that the executives are even more greedy and cowards than ever.

I always wanted Dune to get a good film adaptation. This would have been so good... Really makes me sad.

This documentary is about the dune (1984) movie? and the LSD part is the documentary, or the movie they didnt make? :S

This movie wasnt made, the 1984 film was directed by Lynch.

Could have been incredible, could have been "Krull".   Funny thing about concept art; sometimes it looks amazing as a 2D drawing, but terrible on screen.  On the other hand, sometimes it works out even better than anticipated.    Who knows.

I love Dune, I love Pink Floyd and I love artsy- fartsy stuff. This movie was excellent and I wish he would have been able to make Dune. I hope someday somebody makes a good Dune movie or series of movies

Mick Jagger?  Salvador Dali?  Give me a break.  It would have sucked ass. Now.....Orson Wells as Vladimir Harkonnen....I can see that.

Anyone who wants to see what this movie would have been like, just watch The Holy Mountain. Jodorowsky knows how to craft a story so well.

every movie by jodorowsky is amazing, to me this movie really would have been just as good as he claimed it was going to be

If you want to make a movie that's like an LSD trip, then you do NOT want to make a Hollywood type movie, especially a science fiction Hollywood type movie. I loved El Topo, so it's really depressing to learn that it's director was capable of falling so hard for something both so trivial and so overblown at the same time. As for all you Frank Herbert fans out there: grow up!

Im a Dune fan, and Im not even offended by Jodorowskys Dune, but I dont think, that Dune can even work as a movie.
