Three Thousand Years of Longing (2022)

Cinebuffs Recommends.


The bastard love child of Aladdin and The Fountain.

Well, to say this polarises audiences is an understatement. Even within my peer group, you have bad-tempered gruffness and gushing praise in equal measure for George Miller's somewhat overt flexing here.



This is usually a sign of individual perception of a project that offers so much, so differently, to so many. Critical reviews are often pointless at the best of times, and this is an example why - you will end having an entirely different experience with this than the person sitting next to you, so to explain something so personal, so uniquely yours, becomes something of a moot point.


The performances are excellent, something I believe we we can all agree on, and the direction is affluent and exuberantly polished. Beyond that, well, I may not know much about art, but I know what I like. And I really, really like this.
