Watch: Exclusive 'Jodorowsky's Dune' 10-Minute Sequence Will Blow Your Mind

Although Frank Pavich’s documentary, “Jodorowsky’s Dune” is billed as a film that chronicles a legendary cinematic failure — specifically Chilean filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky’s failed attempt to produce a screen adaptation of Frank Herbert’s storied science fiction novel “Dune” — it is perhaps more accurate to refer to the film as a celebration of the residual accomplishments that emerged from said failure.

Available on Blu-Ray and digital today, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has provided Indiewire with an exclusive clip from “Jodorowsky’s Dune” for cinephiles to check out a 10-minute sequence from the beginning of the film.
