Hoezo in KINO

In the early 1970’s Chilean cult director Alejandro Jodorowsky (El Topo, The Holy Mountain, Santa Sangre) birthed a mad vision for bringing Frank Herbert’s seminal sci-fi novel to the big screen. The planned casting included Salvador Dali, Orson Welles, Gloria Swanson and creative minds like French comic legend Jean ‘Moebius’ Giraud, H.R. Giger (the creator of the Xenomorph from Alien) and Pink Floyd were enlisted for the world building and soundtrack. This fever dream of a space opera never came to pass but its influence on the subsequent Hollywood sci-fi output was undeniable and makes this great documentary on the doomed project a must-watch for every genre fan and Dune enthusiast waiting for Denis Villeneuve’s interpretation of the source material.

Storyline

He has been called surreal, a visionary, as well as cinema’s shaman of psychedelia. He has also been considered a mad genius and bonkers. But in 1974, Alejandro Jodorwosky, the man behind the hallucinatory El Topo and Holy Mountain, took on what could have been one of the greatest sci-fi cult epics of all time, Frank Herbert’s Dune, with a cast and creative team that blows the mind. Frank Pavich’s mesmeric documentary Jodorowsky’s Dune tells one of the legendary “what if” stories of lost Hollywood cinema and gives a pretty far-out peek into what could have been.

I wanted to make a film that would give the people who took LSD at the time the hallucinations that you get with that drug, but without hallucinating. I did not want LSD to be taken, I wanted to fabricate the drug's effects. This film was going to change the public's perceptions
