“Dune” Is Beautiful and Empty

Now Showing on The Greene Screene: Dune (2021)

Dune is a technically magnificent film. The massive adaptation to Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel features Jurassic Park or Lord of the Rings-level craft, but… without the fun. Without the feeling.

I love ambition, I love movies that go for it. Denis Villeneuve and company certainly do that as far as the cinematography, costumes, vehicle designs, et al, goes.
