Jodorowsky’s Dune Goes to Cannes Film Festival

April 23, 2013 | Marina Galperina

AHAHA GOTCHA! You thought Alejandro Jodorowsky’s Dune — the greatest science fiction film never made — was going to premiere at Cannes, but NO.

It’s Frank Pavich’s Jodorowsky’s Dune, a documentary about Alejandro Jodorwosky’s ’70s project with H.R. Giger and the guy who wrote Alien, and the guy who worked on The Fifth Element and… and… how that whole feudal interstellar epic failed, epically.

It was meant to be the film equivalent of taking really, really good LSD. It was meant to be a prophetic experience. That’s Jodorowski’s thing, you know – – – – – ->

Alas, womp womp. But you can see exactly how it all fell apart in Jodorowsky’s Dune. The Director’s Fortnight this year will also feature La Danza De La Realidad, Alejandro Jodorowosky’s first “proper” feature in 20 years.

Yey. Now let’s pretend this never happened.
