DUNE TALK: ‘Dune’ Movie Review, Episode 5 – Fall of House Atreides

On this penultimate part of our Dune: Part One movie review, on the Dune Talk show, we continue analyzing the film scene-by-scene, from its 75th minute onward. As we return to the Arrakeen governor’s residence, it’s clear there’s almost no time left for House Atreides. This week we reach the emotion-filled stilltent scene—we explore Paul’s transformation and implications of his visions of the future.

As with earlier episodes in this sub-series (see links to those in the show notes below), the discussion contains spoilers for the film / first book. We also touch briefly on recent movie news, including the home video release dates and comments from Denis Villeneuve regarding the role of Feyd in Dune: Part Two.

This podcast (76 minutes) is available below in both video and audio formats. Enjoy and spread the word to fellow Dune fans!
