Peter Jackson, Damien Echols Complete New West Memphis Three Documentary

West Memphis Three

Lord of the Rings and Bad Taste director Peter Jackson has completed a documentary on the West Memphis Three with several collaborators:

Longtime West Memphis Three supporter Peter Jackson has announced the completion of a new documentary, “West of Memphis,” about the fight to prevent the trio from being executed by the state of Arkansas.

Collaborating with Jackson and his partner, Fran Walsh, were Damien Echols and his wife, Lorri Davis, as producers. The documentary was directed by Amy Berg (“Deliver Us From Evil”). The executive producer is Jackson’s longtime manager, Ken Kamins, who is repping the film’s sales.

Documentary to Examine Alejandro Jodorowsky’s Dune

In “Jodorowsky’s Dune,” director Frank Pavich intends to get to the bottom of the proposed film and why it fell apart. The doc, half-completed, is currently looking for distribution at Cannes, though interviews with Jodorowsky, Geiger and others have already been recorded. They’ve also released a promo video, obtained by TwitchFilm, which should whet your appetite for what Pavich has in store—check it out after the jump

We hope this is the beginning of a Jodorowsky renaissance. His collaboration with David Lynch’s Absurda Films, “King Shot,” sought financing at Cannes in 2009, but the project was eventually canceled. And we have no idea what happened with “Abelcain,” the long-rumored sequel to “El Topo” that supposedly secured a budget in the fall that same year. It’s just as well, considering Jodo hasn’t been behind the camera since 1990’s “The Rainbow Thief” (which he has since disowned), but we do recommend the excellent two-disc “Santa Sangre” DVD put out earlier this year by the good folks at Severin Films.

indieWIRE: New Documentary To Go Inside ‘Jodorowsky’s Dune’

Here’s a whole bunch of stuff about Jodorowsky’s Dune.

And here’s a clip from, I think, the documentary La Constellation Jodorowsky about the Dune project:

Jodorowsky’s ideas for Dune ended up in his comic Metabarons, which is still in print.

Hunter S. Thompson documentary from 1978 – Fear and Loathing in Gonzovision

The Slaver writes:

This is the famous Documentary on Hunter S. Thompson from 1978. You know … the one where he attributes his good health to grass in his whiskey. It’s part of the “Omnibus” TV series. Also, a rare glimpse of the British weirdo, Ralph Steadman and, the less rare, Bill Murray.
