Easily the best cut of this awesome movie. I’d recommend this to any fan of the original movie and especially fans of the books. This is a must see. 5 stars.

Thoroughly impressed with this version, the story felt weightier, there’s a certain joy in seeing extra moments you didn’t see in the original release although some moments reveal very poor hammy acting that hints at why Lynch is ashamed of the movie, it seems he did not yet have the craft to elicit a top drawer performance from some of his top draw leads. Jose Ferrer, Linda Hunt, Freddie Jones and the great Patrick Stewart (one of my favourite actors) seem at times to be performing on ‘stage’ rather than celluloid. I missed the Irulan opening scene, when I saw this as a 16 year-old she was so beautiful the scene really stuck in my mind but I understand why this was cut for the male narration. I didn’t like Paul marrying Irulan but saying to Chani he would be mean and nasty to her; that didn’t seem right after telling everyone he’s the universes super-being but overall it’s the best fanedit I have seen and enhances one of my all-time favourite movies tremendously.

Thankyou spicediver, for me you made Dune actually hang together rather than just wash over me! Quite a bit of thought went into into this. And when I watched it again I noticed all the little changes with your edit too. The visions and hallucinations seemed more, well, mysterious when I heard less of Pauls thoughts on the soundtrack.
