    Dune: Part Two

    ★★★

    An improvement over Part One, just not enough to make it better retroactively. Some great images, with Villeneuve borrowing as much from Griffiths and Riefenstahl as he does with Lean. 

    Ultimately, once again Villeneuve’s marked disinterest in individuality is his greatest strength and his greatest weakness.

    The Disruptors

    ★★★½

    I watched this because I am a Dropout TV fan, and this film is full of familiar faces from there.

    It is satisfying on that level, sure, but it is also a remarkably polished outsider micro-budget film that comes from a real place of frustration and anger, buoyed by tight plotting and strong characters. I imagine it will resonate with millennials who, for whatever reason, did not follow the typical post-graduate path and ultimately got screwed for it.

    I hope it finds a larger audience than nerds who love "True Facts about Grant."
