I must agree with the reviewer who questioned why this movie is so washed-out. The performances are good but for the young lead. The Lynch adaptation is still the one to see.
The other reviewer is an imbecile. This movie is incredible.
Why does this movie look so muddy and washed-out? The actor playing the young hero in this is completely bereft of charisma and seemed to wear the same expression for the entire film. The Lynch film had neither of these drawbacks, being visually opulent and boasting a winning Paul Atreides in Kyle MacLachlan. Francesca Annis also made for a beautiful and powerful Lady Jessica, giving a decided edge to the David Lynch classic.
