Always cool to be reminded of Moebius’ work, but can you imagine what Dune may have been like if this film version had come to fruition? “In 1975 the cartoonist Jean Giraud, a.k.a. Moebius, was in Paris collaborating with Alejandro Jodorowsky on the never-completed adaptation of Frank Herbert’s novel Dune, a project that at various times involved H.R. Giger, Mick Jagger, Salvador Dalí, Orson Welles, Udo Kier, Gong, and Pink Floyd.“
@deirdrespencer I have mixed feelings about this. We saw the documentary about it, and Jodoroswky comes across as a total magpie collecting bits of shiny creative material and ill-suited celebrities into an incoherent whole. I think his movie would have been a disaster if he had managed to complete it! It’s like dialing to 11 the Toto-and-Sting parts of Lynch’s version.
@migurski ha, yes, it does sound like a hot mess. No wonder it didn’t happen. But still, quite the roster of cool.
@migurski also I’ll have to watch that documentary, it sounds interesting.

Rape in filmmaking Show more
So now I’m reading up on Jodorowsky, and what a fascinating life—just the hobnobbing with the likes of Andre Breton and Leonora Carrington alone makes me want to learn more—until I read a quote of him talking about making a rape scene more realistic by, you know, actually raping the actress, so I guess I’m done with that guy. 🙄
