Frank Pavich’s superb documentary detailing Alejandro Jodorowsky’s attempt to adapt Frank Herbert’s sci-fi novel Dune is a rare and brilliant thing, a film about imagination and creativity which is itself imaginative and creative. Following the cult success of El Topo and The Holy Mountain, Jodorowsky aimed high with his next project, embarking on a madly ambitious film that would end in frustrating failure and years in the creative wilderness. Revisiting documents and recollections from the time, Pavich manages to give a tantalising glimpse of what might have been, suggesting Jodorowsky’s Dune was a lost masterwork from one of cinema’s true visionaries.
