    Lawrence of Arabia

    ★★★★★

    One of the all-time greatest Epics in cinematic history, which captures the amazing journey of a tragic hero within the vast majestic setting of the deserts of Arabia.

    I first saw this movie in high school when I rented it on two VHS tapes from Blockbuster.

    ★★★★★

    A beautiful depiction of love, loss, the passage of time, and acceptance.

    I had heard a lot about A Ghost Story going into it, but I was still amazed at how absorbed I got into this very thought provoking and reflective film.

    It is simply amazing how Casey Affleck was able to emote so much feeling despite being shielded by this sheet with two holes. We see him learn, simply observe, give up, and even get angry.

    Fair warning, this…
