Dune ★★★★

cavernous high fashion runway stuff. say what you will about DV but his imperial, matter-of-fact way w sf imagery is v much my thing. rick owens core. woulda been happy losing all the hand-to-hand fights which are uniformly low impact and uninspired … but thankfully most of this is ambient to the extreme, a dense narrative melted and stretched into a droning premonition of doom. achieves scale by doing as little as possible in a huge amount of space
