Three Thousand Years of Longing

The Goggler Podcast #260: Three Thousand Years of Longing

Dept. of Jibbers, Jabbers, and Yackety-Yaks

Today, on The Goggler Podcast, Bahir and Uma watch and review the brand new George Miller movie with Idris Elba and Tilda Swinton, Three Thousand Years of Longing.

Three Thousand Years of Longing is now showing in Malaysian cinemas. The censorship, however, is so bad that we cannot, in all good conscience, recommend that you watch it at your local cineplex.

While attending a conference in Istanbul, Dr. Alithea Binnie happens to encounter a djinn who offers her three wishes in exchange for his freedom. This presents two problems: first, she doubts that he’s real, and second, because she’s a scholar of story and mythology, she knows all the cautionary tales of wishes gone wrong. The djinn pleads his case by telling her fantastical stories of his past. Eventually, she’s beguiled and makes a wish that surprises them both.

Three Thousand Years of Longing was directed by George Miller and stars Idris Elba and Tilda Swinton.
