It's no secret among my friends that I deeply love Denis Villeneuve, maybe even more than Chris Nolan. Not only does he seem like a very lovely man, but he also has a unique ability to lend grandeur and a sense of importance to even the smallest shot choices or moments within a scene. He also has that rare ability to create huge-scale stories that feel personal to him. There's a tendency that, as a film gets bigger, you can feel the touch of the filmmaker less, but no matter how big his pictures get, Denis' sensibility is never diluted. What's even more impressive is his ability to bring the impossible onto the screen, as he did with the follow-up to Blade Runner, which he nailed, and with Dune, which until now seemed un-filmable. And even more so than the former, he brought a sense of scale seldom seen in modern cinema with his version of Dune.
