Via Y.S.: Jodorowsky's "Dune"

Y.S. takes a look at Jodorowsky's "Dune". This documentary goes behind the scenes of the sci-fi classic whose film adaptation never saw the light of day. Check out his write up after the jump!
What could have been a staple sci-fi film that never was is now getting it's own making-of documentary feature!  The documentary covers cult film director Alejandro Jodorowsky and his 1974 attempt to create a big-screen adaptation of Frank Herbert's seminal science fiction novel, "Dune". While the ambitious production collapsed after two years, Jodorowsky's team of then relatively unknown concept artists continued exploring the themes and styles started on the project and ended up changing modern science fiction forever: H.R. Giger went on to Ridley Scott's masterpiece "Alien", Dan O'Bannon wrote "Alien" and "Total Recall", Jean "Moebius" Giraud created artwork and futuristic worlds for "The Empire Strikes Back", "Tron", and "The Fifth Element" and Chris Foss would go on to work on "Alien" and "Superman".
