Are any of the fan edits of Lynch Dune that are on youtube actually good? I want to watch the movie with my wife, who hasn't seen it before, and I'm thinking of watching the fan edit (this one in particular https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=94d77kdmOvU) with her instead of the theatrical version.

Alright what country do I have to VPN in from to watch this?

Netherlands works fine for me. It's better quality than the other alternative I posted.

The special effects are so bad. You have to remember this came out the same year as Return of the Jedi. And simple stuff like a space helicopter looks awful. Like it was filmed in 1955.

The Alternative Cut has Patrick Stewart dual-wielding a submachine gun and a pug so it's not all bad.

Return of the Jedi and Dune were released almost 10 years closer to 1955 than to today.

I'm sure you know this, but Lynch was actually Lucas's first choice to direct Jedi! Lynch turned it down because hearing about 'ewoks' gave him the worst migraine of his life

I'm genuinely baffled as to what's supposed to be happening in this scene when Rabban walks in:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YirGc7DRJi0#t=7757s

What the gently caress is going on in this room?

Has anyone mentioned here that Lynch and Sting intended him to be completely nude in that scene, and the G-string prop was really built in minutes when the studio told them they couldn't do it?

I was just about to mention that. As a lover of spectacle; especially the too rare full frontal male nudity, I am quite disappointed.

Yes, yes, but what is happening before Rabban walks in??? The establishing shot shows a landed Harkonnen spaceship. The Baron is flying around in a circle screaming incoherently, Feyd is in some sort of sauna machine, there's a guy laughing and adjusting some sort of control box??? musical instrument??? and there's a dwarf vacuuming the floor.

It so is. When in theaters they also apparently handed out a small encyclopedic pamphlet that you could reference whenever the movie threw terminology at you, according to an uncle that saw it on release.

Also, Jodorowksy's Dune gave us Alien*, while the Dune novels ultimately gave us Star Wars. It's an interesting property because on the whole it's inaccessible and unwieldy, but littered aspects of the story or settings found their way into tons of great poo poo.

(* H.R. Giger was brought in during pre-pro to do visual design for Giedi Prime and the Harkonnens, and those Hollywood in-roads are what eventually connected him to Ridley Scott.)

The Baron's zooming around because he's stoked his revenge plan worked

The laughing guy is Nefud, the Harkonnen guard captain (field promotion after his predecessor got a faceful of tooth gas)

The control box plays semuta music, which Nefud is addicted to (just like he was in the book!)

Dune wiki posted:

Semuta Music was a music played to elicit the effect of the drug, semuta. It had an eerie, atonal quality that was generally unmistakable.

The dwarf is just to be weird
