New from A Reel of One’s Own by Andrea Thompson: Tilda Swinton and Idris Elba Are a George Miller Odd Couple in ‘Three Thousand Years of Longing’

Three Thousand Years of Longing is a story obsessed with stories and our need for them. By its nature, it would ultimately be all about us, since it is the ultimate self-obsession to tell a story that is all about the stories we tell. As the movie goes back thousands of years in its exploration of myths and cultures that will be more unknown to Western audiences, the ultimate question is whether our own is ending. Or it would be if Longing didn’t get so distracted and succumb to a few of our more pernicious myths in the process.
