Heroism in the classical sense had never truly been a subject of the interwar films, which instead tended to celebrate the quiet stoicism of the ordinary soldier. But Lean explored the idea of the hero in a very complex way, depicting Peter O’Toole’s T.E. Lawrence as a man in conflict with both himself and the very country for which he fights.

The film’s understanding of T.E. Lawrence (or lack thereof) is encapsulated in its use of white. That we know Lawrence’s fate at the outset of the film renders his figure on screen akin to that of a ghost. The white of his robes reinforces this, as his silhouette is rendered visible by the space it carves out around him—like a puncture, only the edges remain. Thus, in the way white reflects everything back to us, readings of Lawrence’s character find no fixed point.

If there is a single sequence in the history of film that tells you what watching a movie on a big screen really means, and how that larger-than-life way of experiencing a movie can be so important, it’s in LAWRENCE OF ARABIA.
