Purple Rain v. Dune

Jan 26, 2020, 12:00 PM
Josh and Dan grapple with their picks this week! How…is Purple Rain a film that exists? (Seriously it is troubling!) Can your intrepid hosts successfully explain the 875-page plot of Dune – e.g., the spice mélange, the desert planet of Arakis, the plight of the fremen, the third-stage guild navigator? What would a Lynch-directed Return of the Jedi been like? Why on earth did the Cannes Film Festival deny Dan’s accreditation attempt? Join us as we talk Purple Rain and Dune!
NB: There is a new Lynch short film on Netflix where Lynch himself interrogates a v. cute capuchin monkey suspected of murder – go watch it!
