    do you know

    In my opinion Dune is better than any Star wars movies, and since the fisrt time I saw it, I wanted to read everything about the amazing world of Dune. But, do you know that there is another version of the same movie? It is longher, with more scene and explanations. It's never been shown on any screen ( they wrote so on the Italian dvd cover ), though I think that fans of Dune are missing somethig.

    ''A World Beyond Imagination..''

    It [Dune] stops here and there, picking at the vast and varried feast which is Herbert's Dune universe, sampling what it can present to Lynch's audience, in palatable bites, without drowning or gorging in the great depth of the written works. From Lynch's volley, I FELT 'it'; an entree to that world. I was 8 when I first saw it. It was STUNNING. My imagination SOARED, for weeks and months following. The wondrous, quiet beauty, of that alien desert, its lonely, tragic music, populated by mysterious people, steeped in custom and purpose. RIDING the great worms. The richly detailed characters, in presentation, custom, and nearly unfathomably language. Beautiful, strange, and eyepopping. That's what I first took from it, and what I am reminded of. On a hot summer night, some 20 years back. I stayed interested in Herbert, and his ability to develope a universe on paper, in great and engrossing detail. This is an adaption, and cannor, or shouldn not, suite every taste. But if science fiction has a place in Cinema, this is great Cinema. And that's not always in a form we EXPECT or recognise. It would be no fun if it was. I cannot dismiss it, precisely because of what I wasn't expecting, and experienced. I miss great movies like that now. In all their imperfection.

    Narrow-minded movie watchers...

    My dear God, shall You ever make us all forget books we have read when we are watching movies?! I think that every reasoning which demands on a movie a mere illustration of a novel can be automatically dismissed. Lynch may not be the prefection itself (who is?), but his way of thinking as an artist is valid without any doubt. He made his own version of Herbert's Dune, and if this differs from the novel (which somehow I find natural), it doesn't mean that his artistic values are in question. America, teach your children some reception of arts!

    Great Movie

    Dune is a great movie! I've seen it several times and sometimes can't get enough of it. If you love Sci-Fi you will love this movie. Plot is hard to follow, but once you get it, you'll be amazed and shocked. It's a thrilling ride throughout the galaxy of this awe-stricking movie.
