It seemed ambitious to mount an expedition on a schoolnight to the cinema to see a 155 min space fantasy, especially given the quality of sleep I got during Blade Runner 2049.  Yet Dune was a surprisingly gripping telling of a quite in-depth book and kept my attention the whole way through.  I was surprised to see that when the lights came up the cinema was totally chock-full – a sight I’ve not seen in years!  Here’s hoping Part 2 gets made, if only to see who ends up being signed to it: Villeneuve’s gambit here appears to be to stack the cast with talent and then kill them all off before the film ends. 👍
