Weekend Picks

This week we feature two visionary films that offer us an experience like nothing before them. Only one of these cinematic visions came true. The other became lore in the geekdom of sci-fi and cult film.

Jodorowsky’s Dune

The story of cult film director Alejandro Jodorowsky’s determined but ultimately ill-fated film adaptation of the influential science fiction novel. The film’s original cast included David Carradine, Mick Jagger, Orson Welles and would have featured a musical score composed by Pink Floyd, who had just released one of the greatest albums ever waxed in “Dark Side of the Moon”. One of the film’s most notable coup was landing Salvador Dali in a befitting role as everyone’s favorite mad emperor of the galaxy, Shadom Corrino IV.

Enter the Void

A brother and sister are trapped in the hellish night world of Tokyo, where he deals drugs and she works as a stripper. A crime gone bad leads to shocking violence and then moments of transcendence in which the movie plunges viewers into death and rebirth like no film has ever done before. *CONTAINS ADULT CONTENT*

Trailer

*Also available in Blu-Ray.

  1. These weekend pick blog entries are great but sadly buried. They need to be posted weekly on the SAPL home page

    1. Thank you for your comment, the timing of which is perfect as we are in the process of finding better ways to expose all of our great stuff.
