It’s hard to think of anyone in the past decade who has made his stamp on cinema quite like Denis Villeneuve. From Prisoners to Sicario to Arrival to Blade Runner 2049, everything he’s touched has been pure art and among the most captivating films of their respective years. That streak continues with the incredible (though also incredible esoteric) Dune. You may not always have a firm grasp on what’s happening in front of you, but damn, it’s pure beauty and magic.

4.5/5 stars
