When, years ago, I first heard mention of the fact that legendary filmmaker Alexandro Jodorowsky had attempted to make a movie out of DUNE in the 1970's I was stunned. How could he have thought such a huge undertaking was possible? How could he have thought it was possible to finance a project so bizarre and difficult? Given the depth and detail of the novel, in what ways could it have been visualized at that time? In short- what brand of madness put this ultimately failed venture on track to development with any hope of success?
