This illuminating doc finally unearths “The Greatest Movie Never Made”—which inspired the geniuses behind Star Wars and Alien.
In 1975 cult director Alejandro Jodorowsky (El Topo) began work on an adaptation of the classic sci-fi novel Dune, poised to change cinema forever. He developed over 3,000 storyboards, numerous paintings, incredible costumes and an outrageous yet moving script—materials which inspired the geniuses behind Star Wars and Alien. Featuring never-before-seen realizations of Jodo’s mind-blowing space opera, this illuminating doc finally unearths the full saga of “The Greatest Movie Never Made.” D: Frank Pavich, US, 2014, 90m
