Review for Three Thousand Years of Longing. Let's Discuss!

  1. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I have liked Miller's films so I gave it a shot. I was surprised how much I ended up disliking it. It is marketed as some big rollicking adventure, but never delivers on this (had no problem with the heavy dialog and slow pacing, it's just not the movie that was advertised). Instead we get endless flashbacks and a tired romance that is neither sweet, nor romantic, nor mutual. The movie is very enthusiastic but goes nowhere and nothing feels earned.

  2. Trailers almost always lie now (or take you through the ENTIRE film) and this is one of the best examples of flat-out false advertising. I'm glad I didn't see the trailer before watching.

  3. Just came back from the theater. I didn't know about this movie a week ago, somebody linked me the trailer and I was interested just from it, at least enough to go watch it as soon as possible. I didnt know who the director was nor did I read any summary of the plot.

  4. That's funny, I really liked Elba but thought Swinton was Swinton. The overarching plot/point is definitely thin and everything after the hotel room is murky at best. I can see how somebody wouldn't enjoy it. I think it's wothwhile to develop the attention span though, if I may be so bold.

  5. Overall I liked the film, and feel like I understood the themes and ideas it was trying to express and had a good time in the threatre throughout. The actors had great chemistry and I liked both characters. HOWEVER...

  6. This was an odd movie. It didn't really deliver much except for the beautiful visuals. The ending was dull. To sum it up: She truly loved him and thus decided let him go where he belongs. That was the the entire premise. True love.

  7. There are mixed reviews here, some loved it, so hated it, and some are ambivalent. This is the best indicator (in my opinion) of a film's genius and I do indeed believe that this film is a diamond in the rough.
