Oh, to be young again! To spoil the whole thing: she thought Blue Velvet was hilarious, Dune was unwatchable, and Fire Walk With Me was apparently even worse than Dune.
To be fair, this girl is fifteen. I probably had trouble dressing myself at that age. But I do want to question one common injustice: why does Dune get such a bad rap? I think it’s a very fun and engaging science fiction film. If anything, just for the novelty of being the only noir-baroque sci-fi film ever made. And the soundtrack was a Brian Eno/Toto collaboration! How can that not make you smile?
