For the first time ever, we've got a fresh one! Dune is one of the most hotly debated movies of the year and the question everyone has been asking us is: Is Paul a white savior? Here to help us make sense of the newest film iteration of Frank Herbert's seminal sci-fi epic is film critic Cate Young.
We get into the central question of Paul and Jordan does his best to play resident Dune expert by providing the evidence for and against. We also talk about the ways to go about adapting stories for a modern era, and try to figure out what the hell was up with the bagpipes?
You truly need to follow everything Cate is doing, so check her out on Twitter @battymamzelle as well as her phenomenal Insecure coverage for Vulture, and her awesome newsletter on Substack, 30 Flirty Film.
Films recommended: Eternals, Spencer, Rat Film
