Denis Villeneuve performed magic with Dune, taking what were for such a long time regarded as the “unfilmable” words of Frank Herbert and putting them right onto a screen for all of us to determine in most their glory. The sheer proportions of Dune is one thing to behold – from the monolithic architecture, sky-filling ships, and monstrous score, it may be just a little overwhelming at occasions. Yet, Villeneuve seems to ensure that it stays expertly tied together by rooting it in personal and emotional bonds that everybody can connect with, for example someone looking for their world or even the love from a parent along with a child. An unrivaled spectacle, Dune makes good on the promise that lots of thought may not be delivered, and Denis Villeneuve deserves immense credit to make it happen.
