Never to See the Light of Day

Not every movie gets made, even after the labors of love have been poured upon them. An honorable mention goes to American Movie, which I have previously recommended.

Jodorowsky’s Dune (2013) is directed by Frank Pavich. After the successes of El Topo and Holy Mountain, Alejandro Jodorowsky set his sights toward the stars for his next project. He started to amass talent and resources in order to undertake the colossal project of putting Frank Herbert’s Dune onto celluloid. H.R. Giger and Salvador Dali were just two of the amazing people attached to the film.

Lost in La Mancha (2002)

Lost in La Mancha
(2002) is directed by Keith Fulton and Louis Pepe. For several years, the great Monty Python alumnus Terry Gilliam dreamed of adapting the story of Don Quixote for film. With a group of foreign investors committed to the project, he was finally going to realize his vision. Shooting began despite setbacks, with Johnny Depp starring in one of the leading roles, until things continued to spiral downward.
