    Like many people I sometimes name other films or filmakers in reviews in an attempt to explain any kind of similarities whatever movie I'm writing about might share with another film. Obviously it can often give the reader a little idea of certain elements to expect and if they've already seen the particular film it can be interesting to know if they also felt those certain connections. I have a big admiration for everyone here who is able to write…

    Martin Scorsese had suffered a near fatal cocaine overdose just before this was made and the biography of Jake LaMotta was shown to Scorsese by De Niro during a hospital visit and that's how we eventually got this masterpiece.

The beautiful black and…

    This film is Based on of the life of T. E. Lawrence who was most famous for leading armies of Arabian tribes in military campaigns going against the Ottoman Empire in World War I. The film was directed by renowned filmaker David Lean and Peter O'Toole starred as Lawrence in one of the greatest performances I've ever seen in a film and I'll go into more detail with that soon. So it was beautifully shot in 70mm with such care…
