Dune (1984) – Why do I do this to myself? David Lynch only hurts me, but I keep coming back, year after year.
I think I may have figured this one out, though. Paul was supposed to be born a girl, but he showed everyone that he was far more feminine than anyone could have imagined. I didn’t grow up watching this movie, so it just doesn’t have the same impact on me as it apparently did on many of you. Sorry.
It must be said, however, that Paul is a terrible sci-fi name, but I still prefer it over the name he picks for himself later in the movie.
