    DUNE was everything I wanted it to be and more! From the reams of backroom intrigue, unscrupulous politicking and densely-wrought pan-global mysticism, Denis Villeneuve has made this film which does justice to a hallowed text while retaining the slick formal shape of a pop movie. And that, in itself, is no small achievement. Where Villeneuveโ€™s previous work, Blade Runner 2049, too often embraced soporific longueurs as a shortcut to profundity, here the sheer meatiness of this ripping yarn is alwaysโ€ฆ

    This is hardly going to be a review because I don't think that I could ever review something so personal and deeply intertwined with my own life. So, what you're about to read is going to be a sort of diary entry and if I'm going to be honest with y'all, it's because I need it.

It shines in a genre mostly known for its repulsive visuals as this film give more than just itsโ€ฆ

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

    An apocalyptic tale of human survival in a godless world, Bรฉla Tarrโ€™s The Turin Horse is a graceful rebuke to the hypnotic temptations of nothingness.
    Like a nihilistic antithesis to the Book of Genesis, The Turin Horse dismantles the world in six days, passing from cosmic order to dark nothingness. Tarrโ€™s existential story is captured in sumptuous black and white, and builds around a slow discovery of his charactersโ€™ lives. Narratively stark and possessing an austerity of tone that eschewsโ€ฆ
