Ep 267: “Dune: Part 2”

March 05, 2024

We chip and shatter Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune part 2” and discuss:

  • Cinematography, exposure for story, backlighting the sun;
  • Story & Writing, na-Baron;
  • Performances, Zendaya’s layers, Javier Bardem going all out;
  • and other such stuff and things and stuff.

You can have the power to destroy, but it doesn’t give you the power to reform, or improve, or build.George R.R. Martin

Notes & References:
Update 3/27/2024: Denis went on the DGA Podcast with Spielberg and said that the kissing scene actually was filmed over 4 or 5 days to catch the light at a very specific time of day, so no French Reverse there!
Currently no Academy Award for stunts
