    The River


    There's something that feels wrong about a British film in India focusing on such mundane matters of the heart and soul regarding the aristocracy. The coming-of-age film is wonderfully shot, produced and acted but the imperialist notions of the screenplay left me feeling misguided in its approach. Stories of young, inexperienced girls not understanding the ways of love, especially in this context and setting, left a sour taste in my mouth.

    Dune is the unadaptable novel that three auteurs of their era have now braved - David Lynch, Alejandro Jodorowsky, and now with the most self-serious tone, Denis Villeneuve and only Villeneuve had the foresight to split this story into two parts with the massive worldbuilding element of the novel. Now, it's hard to judge the entire product without seeing the result, but knowing what is left in the story has me incredibly excited for part two. Part one does an…
