Aro Recommended Dune

 

USA 2021, 141 minutes
Dir. Denis Villeneuve
Rating: [M] Violence
Genres: Science Fiction / Futurism

 

Synopsis: The son of a noble family is thrust into a war for the deadly and inhospitable desert planet Arrakis, the only source of "spice", the most valuable asset and most vital element in the galaxy.

“Denis Villenueve’s slow-burn space opera fuses the arthouse and the multiplex to create an epic of otherworldly brilliance.”~Xan Brooks, The Guardian

Aroview: Spellbinding first installment of the long-awaited two-part adaptation of Frank Herbert's epic science fiction novel Dune, from director Denis Villeneuve (BLADE RUNNER 2049).

After a history of failed attempts to adapt the novel (see David Lynch's incoherent but striking effort, and the story behind Alejandro Jodorowsky's fascinating failure in JODOROWSKY'S DUNE), this was hotly anticipated, and dare we say it, exceeds all expectations. An astounding, immaculately crafted achievement of vast technical and emotional scope.
