Jodorowsky was originally slated to be the director for the film adaptation of ''Film/{{Dune}}''. His version would have been 14 hours long, and borne only a tangential resemblance to the book (it was going to be based on a ''dream he had'' which he later discovered was similar to the plot of the first novel). He had also contracted Creator/SalvadorDali to play Emperor Shaddam Corrino IV (for a fee of $100,000 per minute of screentime) and Creator/OrsonWelles (who only agreed to the film on the terms that his favorite chef prepare all his meals) as Baron Harkonnen, with ''Dark Side of the Moon''-era Music/PinkFloyd providing some of the soundtrack. As he had already spent nearly a third of the budget without shooting a thing, the producer decided to replace him. An interview features Jodorowsky and some of his collaborators talking about the plans for the film. A feature length documentary ''Jodorowsky's Dune'' also examines the subject.

* CreatorBacklash: He disowned two of his films, ''Tusk'' and ''Film/TheRainbowThief''.



* EnforcedMethodActing
** In an interview, he claims that the scene in ''Film/ElTopo'' where Mara hits El Topo, and then he rapes her was not acted. He has later claimed [[https://lukegoodsell.wordpress.com/2014/01/23/alejandro-jodorowsky-on-el-topo/ that he did not rape her, but instead had consensual intercourse.]] Jodorowsky is a very, very odd man.
** Jodorowsky plays El Topo, and El Topo's son is actually Jodorowsky's son.

During his film career (mainly in the '70s and '80s) he deliberately set out to create films which would have the same impact on a viewer as a dose of psychedelic drugs. Not content with tripping his audience out, he would often set up the film making process as a ritual magical act for himself as well. For example, he used his own real son as his on-screen son in ''ElTopo'', and really put the boy through the manhood ritual depicted in the film. He has also used psychedelic drugs during filming, and occasionally dosed actors before shooting.

Jodorowsky was originally slated to be the director for the film adaptation of ''Literature/{{Dune}}''. His version would have been 14 hours long, and borne only a tangential resemblance to the book (it was going to be based on a ''dream he had'' which he later discovered was similar to the plot of the first novel).

Jodorowsky has also worked extensively as a writer for comics. He wrote a number of series set in his SpaceOpera "Jodoverse" as well as others. The Jodoverse contains a lot of ideas he had worked up for his version of ''{{Dune}}''. Jodorowky's comics contain many of the same mystical, surreal and brutal elements as his films.
