OMG! Documentary about Jodorowsky's 'Dune'

All movie fans love to imagine what the failed projects of legend would have been like - David Lynch's Empire Strikes Back, Vincent Ward's Alien 3 and Terry Gilliam's Watchmen. One of the greats is Jodorowsky's Dune. It has a particular appeal as so many of the creatives involved later went on to be serious movers and shakers in the sci-fi world. Notably Giger and Foss went on to work on Alien. It transpires there's a documentary being made about the ill-fated Dune project and below is a trailer. From this (and the reminiscences he penned as part of his introduction to 20th Century Foss), one can see that Jodorowski is an adorably bonkers fellow.

"I wanted to make something sacred, free, with new perspectives...open the mind!"

Wowzers!
