“Dune” captures audiences’ anticipation, brilliant filmography

Josiah Anderson November 8, 2021
Adapted from Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel series, Dune (2021), directed by Denis Villeneuve, follows the life of teenager Paul Atreides (Timothee Chalamet) as he grows from an ambitious adolescent to a smart and swift leader, capable of changing the tides of reality. “Dune” succeeds in telling a detailed and intriguing story through a multitude of film techniques and brilliant scripting. The only complaint was perhaps its finish. The film ended in the middle of the story, giving way to a possible second part which has not yet been officially confirmed.
