A new week and a new actor from Dune declares Denis Villeneuve’s film a masterpiece of cinema. Josh Brolin and David Dastmalchian had already said that. Now it’s Oscar Isaac’s turn. The reality is that the homonymous novel by Frank Herbert is one of the great achievements in the field of science fiction. That genre was not the same after the publication of that novel and its traces are seen in giants of the genre like Star Wars.

For that same reason, fans of this beloved novel have been waiting for a worthy adaptation of this story for some time. Everything seems to indicate that Denis Villeneuve He is going to give us an adaptation that is going to leave us all surprised and open-mouthed. The Canadian director has full command of the language of science fiction and has shown signs that he used everything he has learned in his career to make the best possible adaptation of that classic novel. Of course, it must be remembered that he is only adapting the first part of the novel. The second was saved for the sequel, which has yet to be approved by Warner. Let’s hope the movie is a resounding success so Warner approves the production of a sequel.
The movie critic Kevin McCarthand he had the opportunity to chat with the actor and could not help asking him if he had already seen the film and what he thinks. What he said was that he is grateful to have been a part of what he considers to be a masterpiece and not only, but quite a cinematic achievement. He is not the first to say it and he will not be the last. The critic shared the interview on Twitter and you can see it below:

They are major words, but as they have been before, they do not seem crazy; on the contrary, perhaps we are before the great work of its director and one that he will try to overcome in subsequent years.
On the other hand, the one who had also said that, as we said above, is Josh brolin. The actor had a conversation with the YouTube channel ACE Universe (via .). In it, he simply admitted the same as Isaac … which he thinks is a masterpiece of cinema. Here his words:
They screened the film for us when it was finished. And it blew my mind. I mean, I can say … I think I can safely say that it is a masterpiece. It is truly a masterpiece of cinematography. What he was able to do and have all these characters and give them his time and his development, but also keep the story together with the rest and do it justice. And the lighting, which was done by Greg Fraser, with whom I ended up making a book that we just finished that has his photographs and my writing. That book is going to be published when Dune is released. It was just one of those times when the planets align. No Country for Old Men was like that too. At that time you thought ‘Do you have the feeling that something is going to be great?’ And you say, ‘No, I’m having a good time. I love doing this, but you have no idea how great it’s going to be. ‘
