Jodorowsky’s Dune: The greatest sci-fi movie never made
What is the goal of the life?
It’s to create yourself a soul.
For me, movies are an art, more than an industry.
And it’s the search of the human soul, as painting, as literature, as poetry. Movies are that for me.
I wanted to make a film that would give the people who took LSD at that time the hallucinations that you get with that drug, but without hallucinating. I did not want LSD to be taken, I wanted to fabricate the drug’s effects. This film was going to change the public’s perceptions.
My ambition with Dune was tremendous. So, what I wanted was to create a prophet. To change the young minds of all the world. For me, Dune will be the coming of a god. Artistical, cinematographical god. For me, it was not to make a picture. It was something deeper. I wanted to make something sacred, free, with new perspective. Open the mind! Because I feel, in that time, myself, inside a prison. My ego, my intellect, I want to open! And I start the fight to make Dune.
