Visual storytelling / world building just fantastic. Very artsy for an action movie. He uses the hauntingly large spaces to good psychological effect — nowhere for the characters to hide.

What is Leto’s bull? Being honorable and going to Arrakis even though he knows it’s a trap? Thinking he can do anything better than the bad guys when he’s still a colonizer? That he still doesn’t listen to his sense of danger (or doesn’t have enough of one), just in a different way than his father? I also don’t get his last line.

Good night, the volume on this is terrible for home audiences. We were constantly cranking it to hear the story, then lowering it for dramatically overwhelming music. They needed another mix for streaming than studio audiences.
