Dune ★★★★½

Dennis Villenueve, you fucking genius! I am not okay. This right here is the real deal, folks. A soaring space spectacle unlike anything else. The true cinematic experience of the year, the comeback of the freaking movies. Man, I'm greatly astonished by the sheer amount of heart this film was able to portray. Not that I wasn't expecting any, it's just that SciFi films tend to be strained in emotional arcs these days. Of course, everyone was excellent, but you have to give it to Timothee and Rebecca for amazingly holding the screen until the very last frame. While I have reservations about Hans Zimmer's composition, I don't think it breaks the film at all. Phew. Well, I tried, but I'm absolutely at a loss for words.
