I really want to see this one.  Someone mentioned it over on QT3 but I thought there might some folks here interested in such a unique documentary.

For those not familiar with the backstory, Jodorowsky is a filmmaker with a very psychadelic take on filmmaking.  In the 70's, he was ostensibly given the Dune film adaption by the studio holding the licensing.  The film would eventually go to David Lynch, but before that Jodorowsky came up with what many consider to be one of the oddest (if not most brilliant) takes on the book ever...if not film itself.  

Salvador Dali as the Emperor.  Orson Welles as Baron Harkonen.  A burning giraffe.

...March 21st is the release date.

Would love to see it. Have read about this a number of times. I bet with the technology available at the time it would have been awful.

I'd be in for that.  I'm a huge Dune fan, so any more lore (even if its inevitably awful) will be right up my alley.
