Dune is coming to theaters tomorrow officially and I personally am looking forward to rewatching the film in theaters (this time without a flood waiting for me). Villeneuve’s Dune is not only an ambitious piece of science fiction storytelling, it is a love letter to his younger self. ‘It’s a book that stayed with me almost 40 years,’ Villeneuve said when I asked him about what made him want to adapt Frank Herbert’s science fiction classic. ‘Every time I open it [I feel] the same deep melancholic, pure joy, I find myself home.
