In my opinion, Frank Herbert’s Dune is the finest science fiction story ever written, and certainly the most important.

Although the film never quite captures the magic of the original book, the beauty of the sets (and the cast), the brooding performance by Kyle Maclachlan and the sheer scale of David Lynch’s vision make this one of my all-time favourites.

If you’re a science fiction buff and you haven’t seen this, watch it now!
