Perhaps the most anticipated movie of 2021, Denis Villeneuve’s (BLADE RUNNER 2045, INCÉNDIES) new version of DUNE is an instant Oscar frontrunner with almost surefire Oscars guaranteed for its spectacular and imaginative production, as well as almost everything else. With a cast that’s topped by Timothée Chalamet, Oscar Isaac, Rebecca Ferguson and Charlotte Rampling, “DUNE reminds us what a Hollywood blockbuster can be. Implicitly, its message written again and again in the sand, Villeneuve’s fantasy epic tells us that big-budget spectaculars don’t have to be dumb or hyperactive, that it’s possible to allow the odd quiet passage amid the explosions. Adapted from Frank Herbert’s 60s opus, DUNE is dense, moody and quite often sublime—the missing link bridging the multiplex and the arthouse. Encountering it here was like stumbling across some fabulous lost tribe, or a breakaway branch of America’s founding fathers who laid out the template for a different and better New World” —Xan Brooks, Guardian.
