Jodorowsky's Dune
« on: July 12, 2014, 08:14:06 AM »

I watched this documentary, all I can say is I'm still trying to put together my blown mind.

Trailer for this documentary doesn't quite prepare you for the ecstasiating experience. Dune was proper sci-fi, but what Jodorowsky was dreaming was way extrapolating cinematic experience to the max. Just imagine a movie where you could have Orson Welles, Mick Jagger and Salvador Dali.

After you watch this documentary, as you dream of how great this idea was/is, you think how much sci-fi movies live in the shadow of a movie that was never shot.

Dune, Ancient Sands which apparently is an upcoming game that I can't find much info about it.

Wear a shower cap, it's easier for the aftermath, I guarantee the explosion of the whole mind!

Aww man, I wish that Dune: Ancient Sands game would actually get made. Such fabulous concept art!! It sucks when games get stuck in development and are never finished!

interesting, perhaps amusing or even, dreadful thought,
