Dune ★★★★★

nothing less than a gorgeously realized and meticulously made adaptation of the crown jewel of science fiction. one of the criticisms i see for the Dune universe as a whole is the cold and somewhat distant universe that takes time getting used to, and yet thats precisely what fascinates me about it. denis makes every detail in Dune seem completely lived in and yet just out of reach, everything is beautiful yet untouchable, which makes for a story about destiny and inevitability seem that much more intense and a little tragic. this is a film you can tell was simmering in the directors head, just waiting to burst from his being. if theres any justice in this world, we're getting a part 2.
