And how can this be?

David Lynch is involved with Dune again. A Director's cut DVD of the 1980s flick comes out later this month. Lots of extras included for those who want to give this one another go. I have a friend who bought bootleg editions of the movie from Malaysia and maybe this will be a better version of that. It might also have been the Allen Smithee edition described on the Dune movie wiki page. In any case, the movie is plenty bizarre and if you like odd sci-fi images and characters, this one is as good as any sci-fi movie for that. Sting's turn as Feyd is quite nice and a very young Alicia Witt as Alia is quite good.

Despite my passions for both Lynch and Kyle, I have never managed to get through the entire movie. Maybe this will be better!
