David Lynch's worst film, he made a real mess of Dune and personally, i think only the most stubborn of fans will claim its any kind of masterpiece... well that's my opinion on it.
It just doesn't 'have it'; I can't think of many Lynch movies that don't, but Dune doesn't have it.
Script is poor, the story is all messed up, some of the artwork is nice and what not but i think overall its a pretty poor effort for something with so much potential.
If only this film would have been made:

Alejandro Jodorowsky lined up more vision, its a shame the studio didn't have the balls and the patience for it. Judging by the fact it had a 6 hr script and would have been a movie and some tv episodes I think that would have been the real comprehensive dune.
David Lynch inherited a bit of a mess, and the resulting film was, being nice, a bit of a mess. I think that calling it "The David Lynch attempt
" in the above timeline is fair.
