The Full Lid – 30th September 2022

There are some actors who worry about their range. Then there are actors who punch lions in the face the same week they play an invisible djinn struggling with how to deal with electromagnetic radiation. Guess which group Idris Elba falls into.

Beast and Three Thousand Years of Longing form one of the oddest self-programmed double bills I’ve watched, and perhaps the most rewarding. When viewed together, they cement Elba as one of the most interesting leading men in the business. Let’s take a look at why through the lenses of character, genre, and expectation.
