Dune ★★★★★

I first read Dune when I was 14. I bought the world’s ugliest copy of it during a period that the book was out of print in my home country, in a big bookstore that I loved going to as a kid. I still remember the night I settled down in bed and opened the book and began reading, because that was the night my life changed forever.

I turn 24 in November of this year. For ten long years I’d been hoping and praying and wishing for a Dune adaptation that would do the book’s grand scale justice; that would treat its subject matter with the love and care that it deserves. This is that adaptation; a monumental and faithful ode to Frank Herbert’s vision that I’m sure will stand the test of time. Can’t wait for Part Two.
