Set report from Empire.
He held on. The dolphin and all the rest of its pod turned and swam out to sea, and still he held on. This is it, he thought. Then he remembered that they were air-breathers too. It was going to be all right.

Jodorowsky Says Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Dune’ Looks “Very Well Done” But Is “Predictable” & “Industrial"

Speaking to the French outlet, Le Point, Jodorowsky not only talked about his vision for “Dune,” but also why he can’t help but be disappointed in the forthcoming Warner Bros. film. The filmmaker said his version of “Dune” would have been “a bit like André Breton’s ‘Nadja.’” He further explained that his “Dune” would have lasted 14 hours and would have felt like Breton’s work in the sense that it would have been “a manifesto to penetrate the minds of individuals and cause a pandemic, but which is focused on life and not on death like the one we know today.”

[...]

"I saw the trailer. It’s very well done,” Jodorowsky said. “We can see that it is industrial cinema, that there is a lot of money, and that it was very expensive. But if it was very expensive, it must pay in proportion. And that is the problem: There are no surprises. The form is identical to what is done everywhere. The shape of it, the lighting, the acting, it’s all predictable.”

He added, “Industrial cinema is incompatible with auteur cinema. For the former, money comes before. For the second, it’s the opposite, whatever the quality of a director, whether my friend Nicolas Winding Refn or Denis Villeneuve. Industrial cinema promotes entertainment, it is a show that is not intended to change humanity or society.”

The filmmaker does say that he “has no doubt” that Villeneuve’s film will be viewed as a success. But clearly, Jodorowsky has other ideas for what would have made a truly great “Dune.”
