Dune ★★★★½

“The mystery of life isn't a problem to solve, but a reality to experience. A process that cannot be understood by stopping it. We must move with the flow of the process. We must join it. We must flow with it.”

It’s been said too many times to count already, but it’s such an exhilarating experience watching something with so much nuance told with so much feeling and care. The cinema is obviously where this is and was always destined to belong, but there’s something to be said about how engaged I was from my couch cushions as well.

The expanse of the world continually draws me in, but the sincerity and brilliant execution of the ideas is what’s kept my mind buzzing both times I’ve seen this.

I’m just relieved Denis gets to lead us back into the desert two years from now.
