Ep. 04-08: Dune (1984)

It is the year 10191, and a spice called melange is the most valuable substance known in the universe. Its only source is the desert planet. Arrakis. When a royal decree awards Arrakis to Duke Leto Atreides and ousts his bitter enemies, the Harkonnens, the Harkonnens violently seize back their fiefdom. It is up to Paul (Kyle MacLachlan), Leto’s son, to lead the Fremen (natives of Arrakis), in a battle for control of the planet and its spice.

Episode 08

Based on Frank Herbert’s epic novel, David Lynch’s vision of Dune (1984), is a mess. Terribly truncated from its source material, the film would have been better off as a series or, perhaps, multiple films than the two-hour mish-mash of bizarre visuals and ridiculous overdubs present in this version. Join us as we discuss the journey from the novel to the screen, its talented but terrible choice of directors, and also briefly touch on the current version (in production). Listen as Johnny Has the Keys journeys to a desert planet with a great cast, beautiful costumes, lovely scenery, and not much else going for it.
