I’ve seen bits and pieces of it on the Sci-Fi Channel. Unfortunately, I don’t think I got the director’s cut. I don’t remember seeing the annoying introduction by the emperor’s daughter. I know Dune fans either love it or hate it. Actually, based upon this viewing, I’m pretty sure that most Dune fans hate it. I wish I’d have rented the director’s cut. Somehow, I feel Lynch’s bizarre nuances would’ve been more coherent than this rambling beast of a film.
Yes, the book was much better. But at least it WAS widescreen.
