This hypothetical hype-fest is alternately gonzo and tedious, though Jodorowsky can be an engaging self-promoter. There are some nice touches but it's all a bit much: too much of a muchness; too much hypo-hype; too much obsessing over what will never be.
This affectionate documentary from director Frank Pavich tells the story of that lost film, offering copious storyboards and conceptual art, and yet it wisely makes the lively 80-something Jodorowsky the centerpiece.
Director Pavich, his first time at bat, has crafted an unalloyed pleasure of a documentary, especially for those of us who care about Dune, about sci-fi, and about the value and power of creative passion.
Jodorowsky's Dune may be indulgent, slightly made and steeped in idolatry in its ode to the imagination, but as wild stories unravel, it swiftly becomes apparent that no other approach would have been possible.
