Film details

After Lynch was hired by Dino De Laurentiis to bring Frank Herbert’s sci-fi epic to the screen, Dune proved a chastening experience for Lynch as his artistic spirit was compromised. However, the film has grown in stature and remains an underappreciated entry in the director’s canon. It also initiated Lynch’s long working collaboration with Kyle MacLachlan.
