Jodorowsky's Dune

PFS Rapid Review – Jodorowsky’s Dune

Written by Alex Gibson on . Posted in Blogs

Alejandro Jodorowsky is a man known for many things: Master of the Tarot, Director of El Topo, writer of what Mark Millar called ‘one of the most perfect comics ever conceived’ The Incal.  It is ironic that he is arguably most known for his never-filmed adaptation of Frank Herbert’s 1965 Dune.  Thoroughly researched and wonderfully faithful to the spirit of Jodo, Jodorowsky’s Dune shows us what could have been and serves as a perfect companion piece to Louis Mouchet’s seminal Constellation Jodorowsky.
