Dune ★★★★★

"You have more than one birthright, boy" — and he must accept both and neither, Duke and Bene Gesserit and exile. The central image of the film for me is Paul and Lady Jessica pulling themselves out from their tent now long-buried in the shifting shore of the desert, emerging from their maternal cavern beneath the sands, reborn from the womb of the dunes. "Paul Atreides must die for Kwisatz Haderach to rise."
