Product Description

Product Description

Dazzling special effects, unforgettable images and powerful performances highlight David Lynch’s stunning film version of Frank Herbert’s classic science-fiction epic about an intergalactic warrior’s messianic rise. Starring Kyle MacLachlan, José Ferrer, Max von Sydow, Oscar winner Linda Hunt and Sting, Dune is the ultimate adventure experience that goes beyond the imagination.

Amazon.ca

Even more than most of David Lynch's deliberately bizarre and idiosyncratic movies, Dune is a "love-it-or-hate-it" affair. An ambitious, epic, utterly mind-boggling--and, let's admit it, all-out weird--adaptation of Frank Herbert's classic science fiction novel, Dune remains one of the most controversial films in the director's exceedingly provocative career. The story (if Dune can be said to have just one story) is complex and convoluted in the epic tradition; it has something to do with political intrigue and a planet that is home to a precious spice and gigantic sand worms. Think Shakespeare's Henry IV with a dash of Tremors, and set in another galaxy. But despite plenty of strangely whispered voice-overs that explain the characters' thoughts (and endlessly detailed exposition), storytelling is not really among the film's strong points. There are, however, a lot of memorably fantastic/grotesque images, an extraordinary cast, and a soundtrack featuring Toto. I told you it was weird. Among the stars are Kyle MacLachlan, José Ferrer, Dean Stockwell, Brad Dourif, Sting, Kenneth McMillan, Patrick Stewart, Sean Young, and Linda Hunt. The DVD contains the original release version; a shorter version cut for television has been disowned by Lynch, who insisted his name be replaced by that famous Hollywood pseudonym "Alan Smithee." --Jim Emerson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Always really enjoyed this movie. The story and visuals are amazing, the acting is very well done and it is so different then most other things you have seen. A very haunting movie by David Lynch, if you have not seen this you must especially if you are a Sci-Fi fan.

For starters, it's a David Lynch film, and you can taste that in every frame. Secondly, but on par with its David Lynch-ness, this is an EPIC tale represented in epic proportions. The movie's IMDb rating is (at the time of reviewing) 6.5/10. My rating was 9/10 -- because I read the Dune series & love David Lynch films?

I purchased the film (in VHS, DVD & now on Blu-ray) for the amazing sets, costumes and frame-by-frame delicious visuals, and for Shadout Mapes and Baron Vladimir Harkonnen (and his doctor!).

Yes, a lot of the acting is now pretty cheesy and over dramatic, but for me, I would have paid the price of the film just for the mind blowing sets!

By Harrison Koehli TOP 1000 REVIEWER on Feb. 19 2008

I have heard nothing but bad things about this film. Before seeing it I was under the impression that it was universally panned as a supreme failure. So, being somewhat susceptible to the influences of mass opinion, I avoided watching it. This, when David Lynch is my favorite filmmaker.

However, I finally decided to watch it with an inner thought of, "Well, can it really be THAT bad?" So I sat down to watch and from the first moments of Princess Irulan's narration was entranced. Sure, the movie is not perfect. The last third is rushed, and material had to be cut to get a reasonable length. But Lynch does NOT disappoint. The actors are great, the script is well-written, the look of the film is revolutionary, and the emotion of the book is transferred with Lynch's distinct subtlety and insight into human nature.

I honestly cannot see why this film gets so many bad reviews. It seems to me, which is typically the case, that most of these reviews are either from people who require a film adaptation to be a word-for-word interpretation of the book, or those who cannot identify with the depth of character and the complex subtext. To each her own.

This has all the makings of going beyond Star Wars and/or being more of a cult film beyond Blade Runner and Alien and such. The cast is impeccable, the special effects are decent enough, and the budget and backers were right there. Yet somehow it has the optimistically pretentious air of 'Let's make David Lynch the new Stanley Kubrick, and do 'Spartacus In Space'. And I think Lynch found himself on the tightrope of becoming a 'commercial brand name director' or a misanthrope bull determined to see Frank Herbert's vision through for the die hard fans and be left for the ages to praise and/or pummel it (vis a vis Kubricks 'Barry Lyndon') And ultimately, any hopes for Lynch and Dune to be the new George Lucas and Star Wars - or Stanley Kubrick and 2001, or the epitome fusion of both; fails miserably here. BUT - that's not to say it's a throw away or a write off like 'Battle Beyond The Stars' either. I think Herbert's Dune started a cult following, and maybe still has today. Yet, unlike Lord Of The Rings - the dedicated followers never increased the momentum. IE; after Ralph Bakshi's daring attempt to animate it, the disdain and/or awareness of the telling increased the fan base and they demanded 'more' in way of visual and dedication to Tolkien's outlay. Dune may someday have that potential as well. But is so mired in 'fantasy', 'sci-fi', and dare I say 'Shakespearean drama' I don't think it will ever catch on fully. But none the less, there will always be a fascination to how David Lynch tried to make it work, for better or for worse. And will stand as the hallmark for Herbert fans to be content with, or amass and 'demand more' at a later date.

This movie (the theatrical version) got me interested in Dune and had a lot of memorable moments. Without having seen it, I would never have read the books, and left them to my one "geek" friend who liked them. Some parts of the book are realized very well in the movie, the sense of conspiracies, the flow of time and destiny, secret communication, thoughts, and so on... the use of sound. But in other places the movie suffers from being condensed so much and from some of the weirdness that Lynch put into it, like his over-the-top portrayal of Baron Harkonnen and grotesque heart plugs and some of the retro props and weapons. But overall, I recommend this movie. I'll never forget it.

The extended version, included here, is basically an attempt to dumb it down for TV audiences. They took every scene they could get their hands on and spliced them together, roughly in order, with explanatory voice overs. Some scenes are missing post production (blue eyes) and there are horrible continuity errors in sound and acting quality. Artistically speaking, the extended version is AWFUL. But die-hard fans might appreciate it for the extra scenes, and for a sense of just how far the director was trying to go in realizing his vision.

The "Spice Melange" extends life and existence as people know it in the year 10191 AD. However, this precious spice is only available on one planet and that is planet Arrakis. Also known as DUNE!
There are two families who want to gain control of spice production because the one who controls the spice, will, indeed, control the whole universe! The spice is mined on Arrakis but there are HUGE sand worms that try to guard it for themselves. Be careful of WORM SIGN!
The families that war it out over the spice are: House Atreides, home of Duke Leto (Prochnow), Lady Jessica, a Bene Gesserit hnadmaiden & their son, Paul (MacLachlan). The Atreides reside on planet Caladan. House Harkonnen, comprised of Baron Vladimir Harkonnen (McMillen), Feyd-Rautha (Sting) & The Beast Rabban, reside on planet Giedi Prime.
On planet Kaitain resides Jose Ferrer as the Emperor of the Universe, Shaddam & his daughter, Princess Irulan played by Virginia Madsen.
This story is focused on intergalactic warrior, young Paul Atreides & his messianic rise to leadership by coming into his own, so to speak. Due in part to an old prophecy regarding a man that will be above all other men.
The circa 1984 visual/special effects are STILL stunning even by today's standards, the soundtrack is by Toto, and some of the monsters created for this film, like "The Guildmaster" were by the likes of E.T.'s Carlo Rambaldi.
This film heads an all-star cast with the ones mentioned above plus - Sean Young as Chani the Fremen, Linda Hunt as Fremen Shadout Mapes, Brad Dourif as Piter De Vries, Patrick Stewart as Gurney, Max Von Sydow as Dr. Kynes, and even David Lynch makes an appearance as a Spice mining worker!
