The only good online fandom left is Dune | The Outline

As corporations take control of nerd culture, science fiction’s most esoteric epic remains gloriously untamed.

Lynch’s Dune, it must be said, has been given a bad rap. I was first introduced to it five years ago, at a time when it seemed the director had retired from filmmaking in favor of his longtime passion for painting and a sideline making bizarro music projects. After watching it I felt no need to put quotation marks around its quality: This was a straight-up Good Movie, blending Lynch touchstones like sinister surrealism and a cast full of wondrous weirdos — including Kyle MacLachlan, Sean Young, Patrick Stewart, Jack Nance, Brad Dourif, Dean Stockwell, Max Von Sydow, Kenneth McMillan, and, gloriously and shirtlessly, Sting — with the expensive look, scope, and ambition of post–Star Wars Hollywood.
