David Lean United Kingdom, 1962

msmichel's rating of the film Lawrence of Arabia

One of the all time great epics expertly directed by David Lean. Seeing this in 70mm a couple of times was a treat for the young film lover. when it was first restored. Seeing again now still marvel at the sheer number of classic film moments on display. The amazing edits, shadowplay, optical effects from craftsmen guided to near perfection. 'Nothing is written'. Love the warts and all performance by O'Toole.
