    Earlier this week I got the chance to see 'Lawrence of Arabia' in the historic Cinerama Dome at the Arclight here in Hollywood and it was every bit as remarkable as I had imagine it would be.
    What really struck me about the experience though was how it made me think back to when I first saw the film on my 19-inch bedroom television in my early teen years. Even though the visual experience couldn't compare to how I saw…

    A masterpiece in every sense of the word.
    From nearly every filmmaking aspect, Lawrence of Arabia delivers stunning execution and delivery, offering not only a poignant tale of the effects of war, but also a visual landmark and technical miracle. The scenery is breathtaking, the sets gorgeous and the action scenes gloriously powerful.
    With many a scene to choose from, be it the Train Bombing sequences or the jaw-dropping desert travel, Lawrence of Arabia offers spectacle like no other. A…

    This is my first time viewing the highly-praised Lawrence of Arabia, and I can easily say that I like it. I like it very much. Although I wouldn't hail it as one of the greatest achievements of cinematic history as I know that many do. Frankly I can't find any reasons as to why I didn't fall in love with this film. It's a very compelling story, its direction is marvelous, it looks beautiful, its performances are phenomenal, and it's…

    Sometimes when people say "they don't make them like this anymore" they are correct. Lawrence is a capital e Epic, a genre that just doesn't really exist in this form anymore.

    Does it play a little long? Oh yeah. I felt every minute of this movie, but to me it helped add layers to this portrait of a man that is something of an enigma. In the end this is in many ways a proto-blockbuster, but can you imagine a…

    Very impressed with this film after finally watching for the first time. O'Toole embodies Lawrence with a great blend of humor, courage, darkness, and ambiguity. The cast of characters around him is superb. The cinematography is maybe some of the best I've ever seen, and the editing only heightens this feeling. The cut from Lawrence blowing out the match to the rising sun is one of the greatest transitions I've ever seen.

    Has its share of dragging points, but overall the epic length feels necessary for a such a big story. Really want to rewatch this one on the big screen.

    Not much to say that hasn't already been said about this movie. It really is the grand and marvelous epic it is proclaimed to be. Flawless in execution, brilliantly acted, with remarkable cinematography. Peter O'Toole's strong, complex, and eccentric performance is one for the ages. Almost every scene is memorable and iconic. The long runtime is probably it's biggest barrier but it's almost impossible to pick out what would be cut. Each moment is integral to the story, there is no obvious filler. Today it would have probably been cut up into 2 or 3 movies.

    Just epic. I was curious if it could keep me interested for the almost 4 hour running time, but it did. The Blu-ray is probably one of the best transfers I've ever seen. Please, if you haven't watched Blu-ray's before, buy this. For me, I haven't given it 5 stars because of the re-watchability. It was a great, great first watch though.

    Lawrence of Arabia feels startlingly authentic, which is rather ironic given the fact that it's a largely exaggerated account of T.E. Lawrence's life. But for once I'm glad that the filmmakers chose to fudge history in the name of art, because otherwise we would never have gotten to see a film so beautiful and sad.

    Lawrence, only two kinds of creature get fun in the desert: Bedouins and gods, and you're neither. Take it from me, for ordinary men, it's…

    That shot of Lawrence on the camel by the sea at sunset...Lawrence admiring his reflection in his knife, his robes billowing behind him in the wind...that score. THAT SCORE. So glad I finally saw this. R.I.P. Peter O'Toole.
