Jump They Say/Dune

The more I watch Mark Romanek‘s video for David Bowie’s Jump They Say the more I think he – or a director with a similar visual esthetic – should have directed Dune because there’s something really interesting going on with that video, a subtle unease and weirdness that the most recent reboot could have used.

That being said, there’s more than enough oddness in David Lynch’s 1984 version for ten movies though Villenueve’s interpretation is too safe by far.

Sure, it’s pretty but then again it’s by Denis Villenueve, so that’s almost a given.

The problem is that, at the end of the day, it’s just not that involving.
