A David Lean classic with huge panormas and a riveting performance from Peter 'O Toole.
Just as good as when we first saw it in the 1960's

A Visionary masterpeice
- Lawrence of Arabia review by SB
I saw this film in the 60's but too young to appreciate the magnificence.
This time around I found the film breathtaking on my flat screen, its scale colour and visionary composition. The music that urged the pace unlike blockbuster music we have today. Every word clear as a bell and the constant shifting of scale giving us a true feeling of the colossal size of a desert. Camels camels oh the camels, the elegance of these strange creatures, must have had thousands of them so medieval when they charge through the desert bearing the standard flags and this is where part 1 ended.
Thats just the film the acting has easily and handsomely stood the test of time, P o' Toole has that timeless quality, I can see him in ANY of the films made today & cant wait for part 2 and would have asked for them both together, if I had noticed the film was split in to 2 halves.
