    I'm always a bit apprehensive when rating well-loved classics such as Lawrence of Arabia. It is impossible not to have certain expectations when watching a film like this so the disappointment is even greater if it doesn't fulfill them. While I can appreciate some aspects of this movie like the cinematography and the boldness it took to even make it, I was not blown away by it and felt it dragged on for too long (and I am generally not opposed to lenghtier films).

    Today was my second attempt at watching David Lean's Lawrence of Arabia. Luckily I was able to finish it. The first time I attempted to watch this 227 minute epic was sometime last year. I got through the first disc which is approximately 2 hours and 20 minutes long only to not be able to finish the film due to the 2nd disc being scratched and basically unplayable. Needless to say I was pretty pissed off. I'd just spent a…

    Maybe someday I'll sit down and write out everything that works so well within this film. For now I'll just leave it with how utterly distraught I am when Lawrence is promoted and thrown aside in his final scene with Allenby, Faisal, and Dryden.
    It's probably very wrong to wish that Lawrence was a god. But it's a powerful character asset that I'll never be able to shake.

    (Viewed theatrically.) Remarkable how the massive scope of a picture can make one man's story seem that much more intimate. And yet also so trivial. Despite the epic proportions of everything about this, the characters portrayed are never more or less than human, including the Arabs, who have suffered ignominious portrayals in many films but here are treated as appropriately by Lean as they are by Lawrence. The cinematography is up there with DAYS OF HEAVEN in terms of being…

    I've seen this, but in the worst possible way: full frame. I barely remember it too (about ten years ago, before I was into film), totally due for a revisit, but I need to do it on a BIG screen.

    Lawrence of Arabia is a top favorite of mine that I'd not yet logged an at-home viewing of the disc in my library. I have, over the years, watched the film at least three times, perhaps more when I first bought it. My most recent viewing was in early 2008, before I began tracking at-home viewings.

    Like E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, I'd seen Lawrence relatively recently on the big screen (4 October 2012) and though I love it dearly, I've had…

    To appreciate Lawrence of Arabia to the fullest I think you have to be a male teenager with a soft spot for adventure sagas, yet one that has patience and doesn't demand constant action. If you happen to be one of those, then the film will likely blow your mind. Older audiences however may wish it had more depth. But even if it plays like a reality-based Indy Jones variation, also as an adult I found the film to be…
