Once again Andrew and Dude agree. This would probably be more cause of concern, but this week they are talking about The Incal, the science fiction masterpiece by none other than Jodorowsky and Moebius. It appears that the end of the world is avoid for at least one more week.

However, there is a movie that is potentially more influential than any of the ones I’ve listed, and yet that movie was never made.  Such is the tale told by Jodorowsky’s Dune, a recent documentary that chronicles the failed attempt by director Alejandro Jodorowsky to make a film adaptation of Frank Herbert’s classic novel Dune.
