Three Thousand Years of Longing (Dr George Miller, 2022) wr. prod. Dr George Miller, dp John Seale; Idris Elba, Tilda Swinton; fantasy romance
Children's story about a genie (djinn) in a bottle. The excellent CGI does nothing to raise the intellectual level above puerility.
These days, audiences are so savvy about the tricks at a filmmaker's disposal that the movie's greatest achievement is that it seizes our imagination (or perhaps that's our attention deficit disorder being so brusquely manhandled) and holds it for the better part of two hours, defying us to anticipate what comes next. Variety.
