“Dune” (Arrow)

People all over the world are counting the days until the release of Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune,” especially after the positive reviews out of Venice, including our very own Glenn Kenny. But most people know it’s not the first adaptation of the 1965 Frank Herbert novel that started a franchise. That title belongs to David Lynch, who long ago wrote off any association with this epic blockbuster, even as fans have been reclaiming it over the years. Arrow has released a beautiful edition for those fans that includes a 4K presentation, a bound book (that includes an essay by RogerEbert.com contributor Charlie Brigden), a poster, lobby cards, and TONS of supplemental material. Finally, if you want to read more about “Dune,” check out this essay about the history of the film by yours truly.
