    I just re-watched this movie as it aired on Silver Screen Classics in Canada. It aired earlier today on SSC as well, but I did not watch it then.

    I first saw the movie a few months before Peter O'Toole died. It had been on my to-see list for a long time, because I knew that it was an excellently made film, I am a fan of several actors in it, and because I am friends with Cogerson and knew…

    A tale of a man who believes his hubris, struggles to find an identity wrapped in the garments of a people who are not his own, and realizes he has no people. The First half is a stunningly romantic adventure, and the second is more of a dreary reality. This is of course on purpose to reflect the inner mind of Lawrence, though the film could probably stand to be 20 minutes shorter, at least.

    A four-hour long epic about TE Lawrence, a poet, philosopher, and pawn of the British government. He thought he was helping Saudi Arabia become independent but was in fact, ushering in the British to gain control.
    The first thing one notices in 2016 are the unfortunate casting choices of Anthony Quinn and Alec Guinness as Middle Eastern men. It’s distracting and silly to cast people who are not Middle Eastern just to get people to see the film as there…

    David Lean's 1962 Best Picture Academy Award winning film, Lawrence of Arabia leans on Lean's inventiveness as a filmmaker. The film clocks in at just under 4-hours and relies wholly on the concept of developing Peter O'Toole's titular character. Joining O'Toole are notable actors Alec Guinness and Omar Sharif to tell the story of T.E. Lawrence, the English officer who sought to go into the desert to unify the divided Arab tribes to fight the Turks in WWI. Lawrence took…

    Great story, amazing edition and production, absolutely wonderful footage. I really liked it, and the fact it has been filmed in 1962 makes me even more enthusiastic.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I despise orientalism. As a history student, I've had to familiarize myself with all those 19th century douches who sought to appear enlightened by indulging in their romantic ideals in a place where people wouldn't understand half of the inanities they were spewing, and I hate them so, so much. Needless to say, I was somewhat apprehensive of this film. T.H. Lawrence, while not part of that particular movement historically, is very much their heir, and I spent a lot…

    Fascinating lead performance.
    Epic in scale but focuses on character moments.
    Gorgeous cinematography.

    Possibly one of the older 3 hour masterpieces that is still not yet dated!
