Very interesting and its long run-time flew by. It seems there are many historical inaccuracies in the movie, but the acting by Joaquin Phoenix is as authentic as it gets.
Not sure this breaks any new ground, but it presents (maybe sometimes one-sided) the research around flow state, how the modern world is affecting our concentration and delves into topics like ADHD.
I had heard good things and it didn’t disapppoint. Characters are engaging and story is well constructed.
The first Harlan Coben series I have watched on Netflix. I won’t rush to watch another. The ending was good, but it was a long and often plot holed path to get to it.
A fantastical movie with a feel good story and great leading performance. It doesn‘t enchant and engross as much as the Gene Wilder original, but it‘s fun and nice.
I was in the mood for some science fiction and this more than fitted the bill. A well crafted, beautifully shot movie held together by a greatly cast Paul Atreides.
