I feel the need to preface all of this with the following:
Christ am I fat in this clip. I was filmed for the documentary Jodorowsky's Dune maybe two years ago, and i've made some lifestyle changes since then. Looking at this tubbed out fucker in the below clip is kind of disorienting.
That bit of narcissism aside, click here to check out the first clip from Jodorowsky's Dune, the movie that explores the failed attempt to adapt Dune in the 1970s. Alejandro Jodorowsky, the visionary bizarro behind The Holy Mountain, was making a prog rock space epic that never took off. It's one of the great what-if moments in film history, as the failure of Dune led almost directly to Star Wars and Alien. If Jodo had made his movie we'd be living in a very different culture, one way or another.
I'm really proud to be in this movie, and looking at this clip I appear to be only slightly a spastic fatso. I'm probably not in the finished film that much, but perhaps I offer valuable insight! I will find out at Fantastic Fest, where Jodorowsky's Dune is playing. And you guys can find out eventually as well, since Sony Pictures Classics picked the movie up, so it'll be getting released.
