Original Dune Director Has Seen The Trailer For The New Adaptation, And Of Course Has Thoughts
What Alejandro Jodorowsky refers to here as “industrial cinema” is what we would otherwise think of as the Hollywood machine. Denis Villeneuve Dune is, without question, a big-budget Hollywood blockbuster, in many ways like other Hollywood blockbusters. The specifics of Dune may give it a unique aesthetic, but the process by which the movie was made was largely the same as other movies, and thus, in Jodorowsky’s opinion, the result ends up looking largely the same. The 2013 documentary film Jodorowsky’s Dune goes into exactly what his version of the story would have looked like, and there’s little argument that his Dune would have been unlike anything we’d seen before.
