We wrap up our discussion of Dune with a trip down a rabbit hole of true insanity. Jodorowsky’s Dune was a monstrosity of likely drug induced hallucinations and philosophy. His goal was some combination of showing the viewer the experience of being on mind altering drugs and believing in a cult like messianic figure. It likely would have succeeded but also made less sense than David Lynch’s Dune, and had less verisimilitude as a representation of Frank Herbert’s novel.

Jodorworsky’s Dune - a view into the ravings of an egomaniacal artist, who was an average at best and likely not even average film maker, who thinks he was and is a giant of the industry.
