Lawrence of Arabia

(1962)

Winner of seven Academy Awards and regarded as one of the greatest movies ever made, David Lean's 1962 epic Lawrence of Arabia is based on the life of eccentric British Officer T.E. Lawrence (Peter O'Toole). Lawrence succeeds in uniting the Arab tribes and goes to war against the occupying Turkish army in World War I.... More

"Grand in every sense, David Lean's film is an example of an established director full of confidence and ambition. Nearly four hours long, several years in the making, and complete with an interval and its own overture, Lawrence of Arabia aims for greatness and achieves it." (BBC)Hide

This film badly needs a hefty dose of homo-erotism to make the characters interact with any kind of meaning. Its a hot hot ride through the desert - lets see it in their eyes ... masquerading as serious, but actually very flimsy, "Lawrence of Arabia" is probably still very popular as a Saturday night entertainment at boys boarding schools across the english language world ...

  • A once-over-lightly look at the man, the movie and director David Lean, "Once Upon a Time ... Lawrence of Arabia" is strictly for general auds only. Hour-long docu would make an OK curtainraiser for airings of the movie or as a preface to Lean events. But there's almost nothing here that's fresh to the already detailed documentation, in books and on DVD, of the "Lawrence" phenom. Full Review
