Rating: **
Director: David Lynch
Music: Toto
Cast: Kyle MacLachlan, Patrick Stewart, Sting, Sean Young, Jurgen Prochnow, Max Von Sydow

An admirable attempt to adapt Frank Herbert's novel to the big screen, but it's still really long, boring, and confusing (just like the book). Unfortunately the effects are pretty tacky and unconvincing, and the long narratives slow the pace of the film to a crawl. A well made and mostly good looking film with a strong cast, but still not that entertaining.
