Everybody loves to hate this movie, especially book purists and the uninitiated. For a few people like myself, however, this is a movie worth watching and revisiting for it's fantastic atmosphere, surrealistic imagery, and baroque art direction. Dune is a practically unfilmable book, but all things considered Lynch does a decent job, and captures the immanent nature of Herbert's novel.
Forse il film di Lynch che mi è piaciuto meno. é sicuramente originale,crea suggestioni, ipnosi fotografiche,tensioni emozionali con inquadrature che hanno il suo marchio di fabbrica.Ma stenta sempre a decollare,forse a causa della scarsa fluidità narrativa e di un montaggio che spesso non contribuisce a far sì che il film si segua al meglio.Forse la parte in notturna è la migliore.Vermoni notevoli, prima di Tremors.
