Movie of the Week: 3000 Years Of Longing (2022)

George Miller directs Idris Elba, Tilda Swinton and Aamito Lagum in this romantic fantasy where a lonely academic finds a genie in a bottle and listens to his tales of love and adventure.

Rich and juicy fairytale cinema. Exactly my kinda jam. Both stars probably do their career best work, the FX are quirky and memorable. Has a strong sense of the mythic and the tragic and the absurd. Glad to have seen this on the big screen.
