Following the worldwide success of El Topo and The Holy Mountain, Alejandro Jodorowsky connected with Michel Seydoux to pursue any project he wished. The answer? An adaptation of the beloved, expansive science fiction novel by Frank Herbert. What followed was an epic collaboration involving the director and a collection of legendary collaborators (or “spiritual warriors”) including Dan O’Bannon, Jean “Moebius” Girard, Chris Foss, H.R. Giger, Pink Floyd, Salvador Dali, Orson Welles, and that’s just the beginning! On this episode we look at how the project developed, how it fell apart, and whether it’s truly the greatest film never made. We also look at some of the criticism of the project, the adaptations of Dune that were to follow and – of course – the 2014 documentary JODOROWSKY’S DUNE that helped bring the story to the world.

Coming NEXT WEEK is a discussion with the director of JODOROWSKY’S DUNE Frank Pavich!

On this episode we refer to the essay JODOROWSKY’S DUNE DIDN’T GET MADE FOR A REASON… AND WE SHOULD ALL BE GRATEFUL FOR THAT by Emmet Asher-Perrin

The first film takes a documentary approach to a real-life incident that took place in Milan, Italy in 1967 while the second film starts John Cassavetes as a bandit with a heart of gold who is locked away while his partner goes on a violent rampage.
