3000 Years of Longing

Three Thousand Years of Longing (Dr George Miller, 2022) based on A.S. Byatt story; Tilda Swinton, Idris Elba

Children's fairy story about a genie (or here, a djinn) in a bottle. The excellent CGI doesn't raise the intellectual level above puerility.

Peter Debruge:
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.
