  • bold-visionDreams die hard. Especially in the world of make believe. Countless people think they can make it in the movies – both in front and behind the camera. Disappointments are a dime a dozen in the harsh business world of Hollywood where people in the past have been taken advantage of. Courage is needed to stick it out. Brave Chilean filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowski had his mind set on make a film ver­sion of a Dune.

    Through the lens of director a Frank Pavich we are gifted to bear witness to one man’s goal of turning an idea into celluloid gold. Brought forth by So y Pictures Classics and Mongrel Media this viewers’ delight is transfix­ing audiences at the International Village Cinemas.

    If there’s one thing that above all else will grab your attention in this documentary it’s the sheer drive and determination of this man from Chile whose desire to turn a classic science fiction novel into a movie is downright inspiring and contagious. Going back in time you see the experimental nature of Jodorowski through clips of his earlier films. Then when he sets out to make Dune we are treated to a series of interviews with artists who were part of the process.

    Memories blur over time but the way this man es­sentially directed what should have been a monumental film on paper ultimately never got off the ground. Admirers of this fabled director reveal that many concepts designed by the creative team were actually ahead of their time, argu­ably making their way into successful modern day classics made by the likes of George Lucas and Steven Spieberg.

    Visually stunning and a feast for the eyes Jodows­ki’s Dune is an epic vision that will only make you question just how superior this vision would have been compared to the Dino De Laurentiis/David Lynch effort. Sit back and revel at this 90 minute movie that will leave you admiring Alejandro Jodorowski and his creative caring team.
