Dune (1984)



Reviews and Comments

David Lynch's extremely loose adaptation of Frank Herbert's novel Dune is a listless bore. For a hardcore science fiction movie, it's not very visionary: the majority of it is uninteresting political scheming, and the rest is unconvincing adventure. The narrative is a mess, and seldom is there the sense that this world is real or that the characters aren't just going through the motions.
