United States | 1984 | David Lynch
David Lynch’s third feature (made after Eraserhead and The Elephant Man and just before Blue Velvet) was a 40-million-dollar flop. Kyle MacLachlan, Jack Nance, Patrick Stewart, Sting, Sean Young, Max von Sydow, and many others star in this lavish film version of Frank Herbert’s mammoth sci-fi novel, about the struggle to control a desert planet where an essential spice is mined and giant man-eating sandworms lurk. “Gets under your skin…Unforgettable images and an extraordinary soundtrack.” –Time Out Film Guide.
