Dune (14-Dec-1984)

Director: David Lynch

Writer: David Lynch

From novel: Dune by Frank Herbert

Music Composed and Performed by: Toto

Producer: Raffaella De Laurentiis

Keywords: Sci-Fi, Giant Worms, Alan Smithee

Paul Atreides, son of Duke Leto and a Bene Gesserit, leads the tribal Fremen of Arrakis to free themselves from the rule of a despotic emperor. Lavish production of Frank Herbert's epic and highly intricate novel, and next to impossible to squeeze into even a three-hour film. Saddled with an often-inappropriate rock soundtrack. This effort is much better than the TV-series remake, Dune (2000). Received an Oscar nomination for Best Sound, and Hugo nomination for Best Dramatic Presentation.
