Dune ★★★★½

I’ve never seen a movie so great that it circles back around and becomes frustrating once you realize how long it’ll be until we get a sequel to its greatness. It almost feels heedless, even experimental, for Dune to lean so heavily into necessitating a sequel, for it not to have already filmed that sequel to have at the ready sooner rather than later. Eventually, its teases for a Part II feel more like a pleading to the studio than an earnest stirring of excitement in the audience. But then I remember DESERT POWER and it makes everything okay again.
