Guy Inspired by Dune
I got a book (from Cinema Books on Roosevelt) on the making of the 1984 David Lynch film Dune. It is an adaptation of the Frank Herbert book from 1965. Almost every printing of the book has a fantastic cover. And the movie is an 80's sci fi classic on par with The Wrath of Kahn, Bladerunner and Empire Strikes Back. Both Alejandro Jodorowsky and Ridley Scott tried directing the movie and failed. Jodorowsky's version was set to have Salvador Dali in it and working on the production design. The worlds are amazing, the miniatures are inspiring, the set design and wardrobe are also great. In addition to that, Brian Eno contributes to the soundtrack. Listen To the Prologue to the film right here.
