Our take

This ambitious first adaptation of Frank Herbert’s dynastic sci-fi epic was panned in its day, but time has been very kind to the film’s grand production design, practical effects, and surreal soundscapes. Just as the spice must flow, so must the cult following for David Lynch’s Dune grow!
