A good movie
A not conventional science fiction movie.
" It is a world where sandworms 1,000 feet long guard creation's greatest treasure - the spice that prolongs life. And enables the mind to fold space and slow time.

And a young leader with incredible powers will emerge to command an army of five million warriors in the final battle for control of a universe and its source of ultimate power. Its surface is barren. Its true strength hidden. Its foreboding desert conceals the power to fold space, to slow time, "

A failure, but a somewhat interesting one at that

"FORMAT: 70mm CONDITION: ★★★★ NOTES: Comes complete with David Lynch’s unaltered credit. Aside from some vertical lines that turn up in random places, most often in the middle but sometimes to the left, just one cut frame and the whole credit sequence being shifted slightly out of place, this is a visually impressive print given its age.
