On David Lynch's Dune

Daniel D. Snyder has a nice look back at the 1984 film Dune. I saw the film before I read the book, and actually enjoyed the film more after reading the book. And both have deeper meaning for me after I obtained some familiarity with Muslim eschatology. Since Herbert relied on both Islam and Buddhism, I suspect that some basic familiarity with Buddhist mysticism would lend even greater depth to the stories.
