“Dune” at 78th Venice film Festival– Reviews
There were many reviews by critics like Owen Gleiberman, David Ehrlich, Scott Collura and Richard Lawson. Apparently, many expected that the movie will be better than the 1984 adaptation of the “Dune” novel. The 1984 version of “Dune” was super flop and critics at that time called it a huge disappointment. However, everyone expected a better movie from Denis Villeneuve. But “Dune” 2021 is also receiving same reviews and most of them are negative.
Owen Gleiberman said that said that film has done excellent work until it hasn’t done much. Actually, the movie is trapped between wonderful world-building and trash storytelling. Moreover, the movie is almost receiving comments like a disappointment to Frank Herbert’s work rather than a honour.
