Why watch this film?

Denis Villeneuve already can be considered one of the great names of science fiction in cinema. After 'Arrival' and 'Blade Runner 2049', the director adapts one of the most complicated and memorable books of the genre: 'Dune', by Frank Herbert. The story had already gained a cinematic version in 1984, by the surreal mind of David Lynch, which was not successful, but has its merits. Villeneuve's version manages to impress with its beauty and development, which make the narrative even more attractive than in the literary work. Throughout almost three hours, we follow Paul Atreides' (Timothée Chalamet) journey on the planet Arrakis, a deadly place, which is the only source of a precious spice that dictates the rules of the galaxy, also known as Dune. The feature has a good rhythm, does not tire and manages to level well the most poetic scenes with those of action. It works very well as an introduction to the plot, since it brings only the first part of the book. If by chance the script does not attract you, the visual of the production will certainly leave you breathless. 'Dune' also has a very strong political context, which can easily be compared to territorial disputes for oil in the Middle East.
