The worst kept secret about Denis Villeneuve's DUNE is that it's only half a movie. Or half a story, anyway. Villeneuve split Frank Herbert's classic sci-fi novel in two, with part one offering a stunningly detailed and impressively cast setup to a conclusion we may not see for years. Adam and Josh admire the film's craft, but they were left with more questions than answers about how the new adaptation will reckon with the source material's 20th-century origins. Plus, the Jane Campion Oeuvre-view continues with 1999's HOLY SMOKE, a critical and box office failure on its release that contains a remarkable early Kate Winslet performance and the complicated sex and gender dynamics we've come to expect from Campion.
