" During the 1940s, the British Council was an enthusiastic commissioner of documentary films. Over 120 films were produced as 'cultural propaganda' to counteract anything the Nazis might throw out and to refute the idea that ours was a country stuck in the past. These films were designed to showcase Britain to the rest of the world, at a time when Britain itself was under attack. Philip.K.

Owes a MASSIVE debt to the work of Phillip K Dick, particularly Time Out of Joint, but at no point does the movie have to acknowlege this, because it's an 'original' work. Then look at Watchmen, which gained nothing from it's slavish devotion to translating the comic to the screen panel for panel.
I'm not saying there isn't a sucessful middle ground, but if Jodorowsky had managed to make a great movie inspired by, rather than directly adapted from Dune, then at least frank Hernbert would've got the credit he deserved for originating the basis, and we would've got what was basically an original movie anyway.
