Dune is a 1984 movie directed by David Lynch and based on the 1964 Frank Herbert novel of the same name.

When House Atreides was given control of the planet Dune, it would have appeared that it had the favour of the empire and hatred of the Harkonnens but no one was foolish enough to see only the surface reasons.

 Star Wars Origins - Frank Herbert's Dune   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Dune mentions the religion of the Zensunni, presumably a combination of "Zen" and "Sunni." The word "Sunni" is the nickname for ahl al-sunnah wa-l-jamaa ("The people who follow the traditions of Muhammad and his tribe", Arabic).
Dune was strongly influenced by Lawrence: Paul is the messianic man of two tribes leading the Jihad, the Beduins are the Fremen, the Harkonnens are the Turks, the Sardaukar are German Troops, and the Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV represents both the German government and the British crown.
Dune fans may be unpleasantly surprised to discover that (unless we assume that Brian Herbert is flat-out lying in his father's biography, which seems unlikely), Frank Herbert was emotionally and even physically abusive to his children.

Frank Herbert’s ‘Dune’ still holds a reputation as one of the greatest science fiction novels ever written, and while this product of the ‘60’s may inevitably be starting to feel a little creaky with age it still holds up remarkably well today.
Dune’s place as the greatest science fiction novel of all time can be attributed to these three phases.
For me, Dune is a standalone novel that needs no further explanation with other pieces of literature (save the fantastic glossary included, which clarifies everything you need to know).

 Filmtracks: Frank Herbert's Dune (Graeme Revell)
Frank Herbert's Dune (TV): (Graeme Revell) With so much cult controversy revolving around the David Lynch adaptation of the epic novel in 1984, it was inevitable that another attempt would be made to better conceptualize Herbert's plot.
Also completely lost in the new film is the epic scope of the story, with few special effects and entire scenes of action simply omitted to avoid costs and keep the story based at ground level with the characters.
The story of Dune can be described using all sorts of adjectives, but in my books, it can be wrapped up in three themes, so to speak: epic, romantic, and ethnic.
