Dune ★★★★½

“The mystery of life isn’t a problem to solve, but a reality to experience”

One of the greatest and most complete blockbuster films in recent memory, Denis Villeneuve’s Dune is an endlessly impressive and constantly satisfying epic, rich with gorgeous visuals and a captivating story worthy of its ginormous scale. Aided by an exceptional cast and Hans Zimmer’s beautifully emphatic score; Villeneuve spares no expense in his dedication to capturing the source material and bringing the celestial world to life, creating such an expansive feel that permeates the narrative, giving it an extraordinary sense of power that keeps it so engrossing. I felt so excited and contented through this film in a way I don’t think I’ve felt in a movie theatre in a while, and I honestly really loved every minute of it.
