Dune: Part 1

Dune: Part 1 dir. Denis Villeneuve (2021) Proper science fiction. Villeneuve focusses on the human element, still operating on a grand scale but favouring murk and machination over cheesy spectacle. Most importantly he trusts that the audience won’t need coddling. Dune’s charged atmosphere trumps any amount of mindless action.
