No it isn't, it's super saturated, especially in dramatic scenes.
His movies in general aren't desaturated though, they're stage lit, with gels. So his scenes are usually bathed in color, it's just that he likes to only use one or two colors to create a super high contrast in the shot. While it does result in a lot of darkness in the picture, it's because he's doing the exact opposite of desaturation.
Not as desaturated as I remember. The visuals of BR 2049 were one of the things I DID like about the movie. However, the desaturated style is still common enough in Villeneuve's movies that I expect it.
And Sicario's not particularly desaturated anyway, more just carefully curated to have a limited palette while keeping fairly neutral lighting.The only one of his movies I think is actually desaturated is Sicario, which is a very very grounded gritty movie. His only real problem I would say that might pop up here is his love of monochromatic shots makes him want to throw particles in the air so it can be the same color as the ground, and sometimes the sky needs to be blue and the ground sand colored when outside, Denis.
It's considered one of the most influential and compelling science fiction novels ever written. On par with LoTR for it's impact on the genre it was based in. The original series by Frank covers several 10s of thousands of years, and shows the long term impact of certain persons of power, and how their actions rippled out through a galactic society through the generations. It's got wars, sex, political intrigue, espionage, betrayals, mysticism, commentary on politics and economies, indigenous peoples, etc.Is it worth reading the book? My sister bought a few weeks back, and it looks quite long. Kinda want to be informed before I watch the movie though.
None of the Villeneuve movies I've seen could be described as desaturated. In fact I more or less remember them as color-coded. I remember the yellows in Enemy, the blues in Prisoners, the greens in Arrival, the oranges in Blade Runner, etc. From memory I guess Enemy has a faded look but it's also drenched in light and rich hues. In fact every movie I can think of by Villeneuve has a very rich distinct look and carefully curated palette.And Sicario's not particularly desaturated anyway, more just carefully curated to have a limited palette while keeping fairly neutral lighting.
I also strongly disagree with the assertion that Villeneuve's movies are soulless. He's just disinclined to show characters' thought processes in very overt ways, especially when it comes to their emotions. He's got a real talent for being able to put you right there in the middle of things with the characters which I think will serve Dune very well.
Half the film is in Mexico, and there's a law that says you have to do something to the colour of the sky when your film is set in Mexico.And Sicario's not particularly desaturated anyway, more just carefully curated to have a limited palette while keeping fairly neutral lighting.
It doesn't? You could argue it looks like an anus, but if its mouth is supposed to look like a human body part, I'd say it's the pupil and iris of an eye.
Maybe because various worm orifices look freaky as shit and look like toothed vagina/anuses? Because that's pretty much what they are? I mean really, what the hell do you think it should look like? A cartoon smiley face?
Reminds me more of the stretchy "sphincter" like texture you get on some 3D models that the hoi polloi aren't supposed to see.Why does the sand worm look like a giant vagina?
Anyway, I can't say onboard. The film looks way too drab for a world that's meant to take place (mostly) on a desert planet. Also, it's lacking a kind of...essence? Like, less Dune, more generic sci-fi.
Wait, what? Is this a joke? If not, could someone explain?Half the film is in Mexico, and there's a law that says you have to do something to the colour of the sky when your film is set in Mexico.
A lot of films will play with the colours (usually an orange filter or something) for scenes set in Mexico, I guess to make it look extra hot and deserty or something. Become a bit of a cliche.Wait, what? Is this a joke? If not, could someone explain?
