In this spoiler-filled film review episode, James and Imo worm their way through the new adaptation of ‘Dune’ (2021), directed by Denis Villeneuve, and starring Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Jason Momoa, Josh Brolin, Sharon Duncan-Brewster, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Javier Bardem and Zendaya.
While one of our critics is familiar with Frank Herbert’s dense, space mythology, for the other it’s a fresh journey into the Dune Universe. They talk on the adaptation’s story choices, cinematography and colonial analogies. Has the director tamed the infamous ‘unfilmmable’ novel or does does it sink to the level of David Lynch’s hot mess from 1984?
Is Villeneuve’s version the mind-thriller or just mind-numbing?
Listen in now for their verdict on the big-screen, big-budget blockbuster of the season.
