    Dune (2021)

    Dune (2021) reminded me why I like seeing movies in theaters. It was CINEMA, in an incredibly all-caps fashion. It was larger than life: it pulled me out of my socially distanced seat, even made me forget that I was wearing a mask, and caught me up in its vastness. There are certainly movies that benefit from being seen on the big screen, movies that benefit from having a good sound system. So…

    I think it’s really funny that fans of Dune (2020) who haven’t read the book have no idea how old Paul is. I’m assuming they’re having him be older in the movie (my guess is in part 1 they’re playing him as 17-18) but in the books he starts out as 15, and I think the movie fans would react a lot differently to his character if they knew that.

    #chalamet just looks younger than the guy who played Paul in the 1984 version #so he passes well enough as a character who’s 17-18 despite being 26 #but yeah everyone’s favourite war criminal is 15 to begin with and I think that’s hillarious #duneposting#dune

    I will say one of the things I AM looking forward to in Villeneuve's Dune series is that emphasizing the politics highlights the reasons for the Atreides family's tragedy... very specifically, there's a moment with Leto & Jessica I hope gets echoed with Paul and Chani, where Leto tells Jessica, "I should have married you," because she's actually a consort, his favorite consort obviously (they do actually love each other), and one who gave him a son to be his heir, and who did so on purpose. Out of devotion to & love for Leto, yes, but also to secure her position more firmly beside him, and who knows? If not for politics maybe Leto would never have preferred or needed a son in the first place— if he could have married Jessica rather than needing to keep the possibility for a marriage of political alliance open, if he wasn't a person with political rank, Paul might have been a girl & a "normal" Bene Gesserit, rather than being designed & conceived deliberately as an heir to empire.

    Because that's their problem, they are a family of people struggling to make choices as good individuals, as good parents or partners, but none of them can abandon empire, and you cannot be a good imperialist, because serving empire as its tool will destroy you. That's why Paul doesn't marry Chani or stay with the Fremen forever, because he thinks, I can still do good within the imperial framework, I can have a political marriage & heal this toxic system from the inside out, and he is wrong. It's why his & Chani's children have to meet tragic fates, because if you define being an Atreides by that political imperial position, by extension being born an Atreides automatically puts a target on your back... It's why even though I hate how Alia's story played out, and even if Villeneuve goes more metaphorical with the Baron's corruption of her as an ideological One Ring style taint rather than true possession, yeah, the deeply traumatized & violent child who was never even in utero allowed to be a child, and in many ways was created as a weapon, certainly moreso than Paul, can never reconcile who she wants to be, and who she could've been in a kinder universe, with what she was made to be and eventually what she was forced to become.

    That's why I said the thing about Paul becoming a worm, you cannot be a good man, and a father who protects his children (especially Fremen children!), and a good agent of empire— both in attempts at morality, but also in political & military success— they are incompatible goals. The act of choosing empire at all means your goodness and your children's safety is sacrificed, they are your casualties... the only freedom would've been in rejection of empire entirely, or in death. And even within empire, even as the Kwisatz Haderach & Mouadib & Paul Atreides, you become this golden idol, Ozymandias in the desert, and you will be consumed in turn after everything you are is destroyed by the machinery of empire that devoured & defined your whole existence.

    And I still wish Lynch had gotten a chance to do Dune on this scale, because none of that is less tragic when it's "just" interconnected families destroying each other surrounded by oil/cocaine & religion & magic (and are trapped in cycles of it, eventually being turned into what they're fighting over!), and I think both Lynch & Villeneuve's adaptations do a lot to polish up Herbert's work, because unless you pick one of those angles to run with, the clarity of the message isn't always there (see also: so many problems w the Dune miniseries)... and I do still also wish it wasn't Chalamet just because I'm not convinced he's got the acting range to pull all of this off. But time will tell, and I think these thematic choices are really strong (even aesthetically it's growing on me) despite my concerns about the cast... and when we get there, it'll be a fun story to watch.

    I will give them credit, though, I did not think Stellan Skarsgård could pull it off as the Baron, but they've come a long way since Kenneth McMillan's blistered Austin Powers Fat Bastard fatsuit, and the 2021 Harkonnens' updated vibe is very fun on top of Stellan obviously selling a good menacing villain.

    yeah, yeah, lots to unpack re: obesity & disfigurement as visual cues for diseased, overindulgent, grotesquely exploitative evil (both personally + like, colonially) as cast alongside very tall, thin, fit, able-bodied young people in the first place, but mostly the Baron's job is to be fucking weird & viscerally uncomfortable, and to STAND OUT by doing so in a SEA of weirdness & visceral discomfort, and BOY does he deliver.

    oh man I been sharing memes this whole time but I just sat down to watch Dune and... yeah... as predicted: Vileneuve gave into self seriousness & in so doing deliberately shied away from fun aesthetics like Lynch had because he's a cornball who thinks desaturated minimalism is more artistically legitimate than color or innovative costume/character design (cinematography & framing is lovely, not mad at the spaceship designs, and tbh the sound design is STELLAR, but it MUST be said)

    but also I realize now I never watched a Timothee Chalamet movie and yeah yeah yeah his face is very symmetrical & all but he is almost CARTOONISHLY mopey in motion, like he is very technically pretty but I've already said elsewhere he looks like a Burton caricature of a person (specifically Byronic flavored consumptive Christian Bale lmao, but, yk, less talent & more nepotism— not to be mean, just another thing that MUST be said! but fr Christian been tearing stuff up since he was just a lil youngster on skill alone, Timmy has rich parents) & WOW I was right

    anyway... I do appreciate that Denis was like "MY angle is def the rise & fall & interpersonal destruction within the gears of imperialism moreso than the magic war," though I love that Lynch was like, "ok but the magic war is REALLY compelling," like you could see Vileneuve making sure that Paul turning into a worm is symbolic & about being subsumed by the material conflict itself down to being an image + fetish object to be deified and/or exploited and then consumed, Lynch would do that but lean into the literalism of the fuckin worm

    but it is tricky because while Vileneuve's obviously crafted a technically superior film, I can't tell if it's more racist than Lynch's or just feels more racist due to less weirdness on top to distract from the weirdness of how the Fremen are both written & discussed (like Lynch playing up the mysticism means it's a much more played straight white savior narrative, but the Fremen being like, "no, you're The Guy, The Guy from The Prophecy," is less... off-color... when the Bene Geserrit Kwisatz Haderach stuff is more central to the thrust of the story & it all goes uncriticized, but Vileneuve emphasizing the politics highlights the Fremen as the ones looking for a white savior, and it's very shades of "superstitious natives being weirdly worshipful of a guy who happens to be The Guy," and retaining the criticism of the imperial colonial model + the "this is actually why you specifically shouldn't put ANY guy on a pedestal" points works well with the overarching political themes, but it also definitely imo diminishes the Fremen, more than Lynch's does, to Paul's cheerleaders, supporting act, and Orientalist, Exotic Mystic, Noble Savage, sovereignty-subplot-footnote props)...

    and despite that as a narrative issue, the movie's good, or at least, not irredeemably bad... but I can't tell yet if Lynch's is more fun, or again, if it just feels more fun because it feels weirder & less racist, or if it's a nostalgia thing, or if Vileneuve's will eventually get fun (even if not equally, just a different fun) once we get more Chani + Alia.

    whatever, though. my point is Timothee's kinda funny looking & not of any particularly noteworthy talent. what's up with that, y'all? you just let him be famous? not to pull some cheesy, "ohhhhh, are the heterosexuals okayyyyy?" type of bullshit re: his looks, but phew the state of Hollywood! not that weird racist cult classic sci fi (weird even FOR racist cult classic sci fi lol) should or should not have top shelf vs mid talent or anything, but the fact that Timmy IS considered top shelf... I'm not a weirdo who wants a return to the studio system or anything goofy like that, and nepotism was always a factor, but truly, I'm blaming superhero movies & wack ass action franchises for the kind of casting trends that only leave room for the Timothee Chalamets of the world to play Paul Atreides, especially in stories like Dune that do so much with legacy & legitimacy in regards to its characters' ties to spouses, partners, children, corruption, casualties, and yeah, nepotism. a BIT on the nose if it was anywhere from 35-72% more self aware.

    #long post // #am I a hater very well then I am a hater...... #like I'm thinking about this angle harder than Lynch did. but Lynch also didn't have to. because he made different choices lol #he saw the source material & said ''whoa whoa everybody shut the FUCK up. tell me more about these witches'' & I RESPECT that so much! #but Vileneuve clearly said ''I want this to be a big brain momenttttt'' and cast the nepotism baby as the nepotism baby #and like... I can't tell if he KNEW that's what he did or not lmao. and tbh if he DID know idk if he TOLD ANYONE ELSE. #also the difference in racial tone despite a more diverse cast... odd tbh... can't tell if it's accidental OR on purpose or smart OR stupid #critical // #dune critical // #dune#dune (1984)#dune (2021)
