Dear Cinephiles,

     As you spring into Summer, we have a funky trio of films to share. We start by diving into the world of Dune and Dune: Part Two with our returning Fantasy and Sci-Fi expert, Caitlin Brehm. In her article she discusses how Frank Herbert's saga is more relevant now than when it was first written, in 1965. It is appended with art by Joan Medina. 


     Following this, we offer you an exploration of Popeye, directed by Robert Altman, and of the Mediterranean island of Malta, as Stephanie Gardner regales us with her very first marathon experience, set on the gorgeous island, home to the film's set of Sweethaven, a cartoon-like town embedded on the coast. What an awesome discovery for you Altman fans. For those who have never seen the film––Popeye is played by the late Robin Williams, and Olive Oyl is played by Shelley Duvall. Never could we imagine more perfect casting for these kooky, beloved characters. 

     And finally, we have a shimmery mix inspired by A24's Jane Schoenbrun horror-drama, I Saw the TV Glow, curated by @missyaggro, who says many of the songs touch on the theme of the film: surviving high school. And with that we extend our wish to all you new graduates––many congratulations! You made it through teenagerhood and (most likely) suburbia!
