Sean Young’s Making of Dune

Another David Lynch related blog but this one is pretty short and sweet. Sean Young was one of the stars of Lynch’s Dune, Lynch’s only real ‘failure’ but I film I highly regard as something unlike any other science fiction film of the time, or indeed, since. It doesn’t quite work but it is less turgid than the book which I’ve never, ever liked however it does create a future which is utterly alien and familiar at the same time.

Turns out Young had a Super 8 camera with her and here’s a brief video of her home movies from behind the scenes filming Dune. Enjoy.
