Lynch's version difficult to follow? That's an understatement. It was clearly made for people who read the book. I saw it when it first came out. I had read the books not too long before hand so I could follow it fairly easily, but my friends (none of which read the book) didn't have a clue what was going on. I'm not a big fan of that version, and I don't know if I'll like the new version either. FWIW, there was a Dune mini-series a while back. Low budget, and by definition lengthy, but it was easier to follow and somewhat close to the book.
Yes, I needed to watch the Lynch version twice with some rewind /repeats to understand it. That version was, in my view, worth some effort. For example, the actor portraying Paul Atradies projected a sense of maturity, focus, and destiny, whereas GameBoy Playstation IV Jr., was only waiting for his next energy drink to rejoin his video game.
It's been too long since I've seen it, but I've never really wanted to watch it again.
BTW, the new one is one of two, which might explain the lack of ending.
