Dune ★★½

Dune split me in half. There’s two ways to fully judge this sprawling mess of an epic. On the one hand, the technicality of the film is superb. The production design, sound, score, and practical effects were enough to keep me engaged, but the story is an incomprehensible, unstructured ugly disaster. It’s tough to say whether a second or third watch could change my mind, but at this point I’d venture to say this is the unbridled disaster it’s been hailed as since releasing in 1984.
