Jodorowsky’s Dune (6/10)

Although the subject matter is interesting, I didn’t get much out of the documentary that I didn’t already know from the trailer. The film follows the doomed pre-production of a 70’s version of Dune. It consists mainly of anecdotes about how each of the creative people behind the production was recruited by the director and inspired by his crazy vision. The film’s thesis is that this would have been one of the most remarkable films of all time, but it just felt like it would have been a typical 70’s sci-fi preach-fest with trippy design.
