Special Coverage: Audience Discussion On Jodorowsky’s Dune

We were lucky to have Jodorowsky’s Dune showing in our area during it’s run and thanks to the wonderful people at Zoetropolis Art House we were able to host a discussion after a screening. It was great to see so many fans of Dune and film alike stick around to dig into some of the interesting parts of this documentary. We know a lot of you wanted to join us for this event, so we recorded the discussion just for you. Enjoy and we hope to see you at one of our events in the future!

    No mention of just how unlikely this was. Would have been interesting and epic, but without them going on about the twin-headed dolphin Dali wanted to piss into, it’s hard to take the project *that* seriously. I will admit the blue glowing spice (cinnamon is the best Herbert could do?) and the magical conception through transmutation of blood have grown on me, though. I never did think the wives theme tacked on at the end was sufficiently developed. It was the one part Rafaela De Laurentiis did right leaving out. The whole terrible fate avoided by self-sacrifice is far more ultimately messianic, as well, and doesn’t reek of sequelitus. In some ways it’s possible this film version could have been better than the book… but there are so many ways it might have ended up campy or cheap-looking
