Come esistono gli pseudobiblia (il Necronomicon ne è un esempio), esistono pure film che non esistono, citando il buon Maccio. Uno dei più famosi è sicuramente Dune di Alejandro Jodorowsky. Il visionario regista cileno si incaponì su questo progetto, anche se non aveva 👇
mai letto il capolavoro fantascientifico di Herbert, e nella sua mente prese vita un film straordinario, pittoresco al limite del grottesco, surreale e con un cast sopra le righe che doveva comprendere Salvador Dalì, Orson Welles, Mick Jagger e la colonna sonora dei Pink Floyd👇
Lo storyboard era del celebre Moebius, effetti speciali e reparto tecnico Dan O’Bannon e Giger (a cui dobbiamo quel capolavoro di Alien) e Chris Fosse, straordinario disegnatore di Space Art. L’idea di Jodo era ambiziosa al limite della follia, ma se quel tipo di ossessione 👇

In 2019, Austin Butler heard Baz Luhrmann was making a movie about Elvis Presley. The actor put all meetings and other auditions on hold to focus on #Elvis: “I knew that the only way that I could do it was if I gave it everything that I had.”…
While preparing for the role, Butler tried performing “Love Me Tender,” but it didn't feel right. He thought of his late mother, how he and Presley shared that grief, and sang “Unchained Melody.”

“Channeling those emotions just felt true,” he says.…
Butler's tape impressed Baz Luhrmann: “It didn't feel like an audition. It felt like a spycam.”

Butler went through several months of Elvis workshops, acting and singing in character, before he won the role.…

Se estrenó #TheBatman en HBO 🔥Que nos encierren en Arkham! Escribí hilo con 30 datos apasionantes, influencias, simbolismos,claves estéticas del hombre murciélago de R Pattinson y director Matt Reeves.Desde Kurt Cobain,Taxi Driver, David Lynch,Hitchcock y Stephen King (parte 1)
1.Corrupción: El director y co-guionista Matt Reeves estudió cintas conspirativas de 70s: Klute,Chinatown y All the Presidents Men. Personajes de #TheBatman como el fiscal Colson y Don Mitchell -alcalde- tienen esos nombres por figuras claves del escándalo Watergate de Nixon.
2.Riddler observa con binoculares al alcalde,Wayne y Selina tb espían. Reeves analizó lo subjetivo de Hitchcock.“En Rear Window el personaje al mirar convierte al espectador en voyerista.Y nos implica pq a todos nos fascina mirar. Hay cuestionamiento sobre la moralidad de mirar”

From a bumper 2021 in which sprawling blockbusters finally hit reopened movie theaters, and streaming platforms released more prestige flicks than ever, 10 films remain in contention for the best picture #AcademyAward.
Here's a rundown from @andrewmarszal
@andrewmarszal Kenneth Branagh's semi-autobiographical #Belfast has long been viewed as a serious #Oscars contender. It depicts the outbreak of violence in his native Northern Ireland in the late 1960s from the perspective of a nine-year-old boy
@andrewmarszal #CODAfilm centers on teen Ruby, the only hearing member of a deaf household in a small US fishing community. The #Oscars contender, which cast deaf actors in lead roles and features copious dialogue in sign language, has been celebrated as a landmark in disability representation

Why are movies so long now?…
In an age when there’s no shortage of entertainment options, directors, producers or executives don’t need anyone to exit a movie and think: “It was good, but it was way too long.” ImageImageImage
It may not be scientifically proven, but sometimes it feels like movies are, indeed, getting longer. Many of this year’s biggest releases may as well have run forever and a day. Image

At the dawn of the new year, I'm realizing a never did a rundown of the top five posts from the blog in 2021. It was really guest writers who kept the thing afloat, as we can see with the 5th most read piece from 2021: Howard Zhou on China
Coming in at number four, I look at Baron Harkonnen's exceptional tactical victory on Arrakis, and his subsequent strategic failure, in #Dune
Number 3 is a piece showcasing the, uh, "angry" part of my moniker.

This still plea is still in effect in 2022, btw.

#SpiderManNoWayHome is a welcome reminder, after a brutal 18 months, that movie theaters can still create a kind of grand cultural happening that simply can’t be replicated on Netflix.
The rate of change in a century-old sector of the entertainment industry has been stunning. Major studio films like #Dune and #HalloweenKills were refashioned as simultaneous HBO Max or Peacock releases. Image
The domestic box office was much improved from the dumpster fire that was 2020, with total revenues expected to top out at roughly $4.4 billion. However, it’s down approximately 61% from pre-COVID 2019.

☀️Como citar duna na sua redação ENEM — A Thread ☀️#ENEM2021 #ENEM #DUNE
1. Crise hídrica ☀️
Em duna o povo nativo do planeta fictício Arrakis precisa reutilizar a umidade de seus corpos, através de trajes especiais que reciclam os fluidos corporais. Em Duna a água é um recurso extremamente precioso e na vida real a mesma coisa acontece+
Já que existem lugares no Brasil em que a água limpa é um recurso escasso e as mudanças climáticas também tem contribuído para tornar a água um recurso cada vez mais precioso no mundo.

Ran another session of our #Dune RPG campaign and my players are super conscious with everything they are doing.
It's so much fun seeing them expecting weird things happening without knowing what's happening in the background!
So far, they infiltrated the palace of their rival house and a special facility, but on the surface not much has happened!

In einem #Dune von Aldous Huxley (falscher Autor!)[1] wäre das Halluzinogen Illusion und Herrschaftsimstrument, bei Frank Herbert ist es, Fluch und Segen zugleich, Voraussetzung für die Prinz-und-Prinzessin-Story. Ein "Öl", Intrige sind der Antrieb. Der Film _Kin-Dza-Dza!_
verfährt anders.
Auch hier bilden, wie in _Dune_ (von Herbert!), Wüste und Sand den U-Topos, den Un- oder Nicht-Ort. Der Held und sein Sancho Panza in _Kin-Dza-Dza!_ ist aber einer aus dem Noch-Sowjetischen Betrieb. Gesellschaft selber ist das Halluzinogen. Herrschaftsintrumente sind unberedbar,

🦟Dans l'univers de #DUNE, on se déplace en #ornithoptères et beaucoup les connaissent seulement de par cette œuvre (livre ou adaptation).

Comme exemple de #biomimétisme datant de bien avant que le biomimétisme ne soit à la mode, penchons-nous sur cet aéronef futuriste.

📖De tout temps les hommes ont voulu voler tel les oiseaux ou Icare ... non, arrêtons avec les poncifs (faux pour certain) et revenons plus sérieusement au sujet.

Le terme #ornithoptère désigne

Un appareil volant au moyen d'ailes battues, comme un oiseau ou un insecte.

#LéonarddeVinci (1486-1513) aurais conçu le premier #ornithoptère, mais vers 1250, le Roger Bacon écrit une 1ʳᵉ description technique connue du vol d'un ornithoptère dans "Secrets de l'art et de la nature", le nom Ornithoptère (de Ornithos, Oiseau et Ptéron, Aile) serait de lui.

68.02/ This is right in my wheelhouse: scholarship laden pop-culture analysis. This is of #Dune

68.03/ #Dune is an incredibly flawed book that's nonetheless fascinating. Also, as a kid I thought the (pseudo) Arabic was Hebrew. e.g. "Kwisatz Haderach" which I eventually recognized from Midrash (from last week's parsha! God "shortened Eliezer's way"):…

#Dune Shams-ud-din Muhammad Hafiz Al Shirazi (c. 1320-1389) was a Persian spiritual poet. He was called Lissan Al Ghaib [Tongue of the Unseen] because his poetry was so touching that it felt otherworldly🧵 Image
Ralph Waldo Emerson and Johann Wolfgang von Goethe both translated Hafiz. Emerson said of Hafiz: "Hafiz is a poet for poets" and Geothe said "Hafiz has no peer".

I have seen Timothée of Arabia caress the spice-laden sands while having messianic visions of a blue-eyed Zendaya in a desert perfume commercial and reader, on the whole, it was magnificent. A few thoughts on #DuneMovie 🧵
Herbert's story turns the Star Wars-style hero's journey and the white savior story on its head, subverting readers' expectations of a heroic superman by writing a mid-20th century critique of empire and imperialism, as @use_theforce_em has argued…
Villeneuve seems to be following the overall narrative arc of Herbert's novel closely, as he sets up Paul's inevitable fall as a failed messianic/imperial leader. The film ends just at the point when Paul begins his journey into megalomania that will end in imperial autocracy.

Well, I thought that was pretty stupefying. Like Lawrence of Arabia, only with giant worms. What's not to like? #Dune

I went to see #Dune with ecosystem scientist @ymalhi and we chatted about the deep science of Frank Herbert's world on the podcast. We do go into the sandworms. A quick taster: 1/

Frank Herbert was way ahead of his time. In making the link between living things and the planetary system of Arrakis, Herbert anticipated what James Lovelock did with #Gaia 2/
But Herbert was probably aware of the work of Soviet biologist Vladimir Vernadsky whose book The Biosphere (written in 1926!) argued that life is the geological force that shapes the Earth. Vernadsky is a Russian legend but less known in the west 3/

While this article on #Dune only scratches the surface of the book and it's themes, the author rightfully frames it as a personal reflection on the book by a Muslim, rather than an analysis of what Herbert was trying to achieve by mentioning religion in it.
A few observations:
One thing that stood out from the article is the idea of offense. That the use of some "Islamic" terms may be contentious if not condescending and insulting to Muslims, such as Auliya, and I'm imagining many others as well.
I feel this contention is a bit shortsighted; many of these concepts are not exclusive to Islam.Auliya is abtemr used in Arabic Christian workz. Phonetically it's a familiar term, in Dune it's used for something entirely different.

As the new #Dune premieres in London I’ll share a lil story. I’m the actor in this article whom James McAvoy quotes-pretty bonkers in and of itself. What tickles me about *his* story is that our respective recollections of our encounter are very different in sweet, powerful ways.
About 20 years ago, as a lead actor in a series on the then Sci-fi Channel, I was invited to a screening —with my co-star Ben Browder— of a Dune miniseries. Ben & I sat together. I fidgeted a lot; sorry Ben. Undiagnosed ADD and PTSD made screenings at the best of times torturous
This screening was looooong. I was struggling to stay focused until, I kid you not, in the last three seconds— ok maybe three minutes of this 2, 3 or 4 hour portion—a young man came on screen, walking through a door, chest heaving, eyes ablaze, not uttering a line of dialogue
