Lawrence on my anniversary

By Richardrivas

My wife and I met 4 years ago and what a great way to celebrate that meeting. We could not stop talking (after the film) about the plot, score and cinematography. What an enjoyable experience. Thank you Fathom, and than you Fandango and AMC. We had a great night at the movies

Larence of Arabia

I was in my teens when Lawrence was released in 1960. At the time I saw it I loved it and considered it to be the best film ever. Years later I watched it again, twice, and thought it to be one of the best films ever. Yesterday once again confirmed that. The thing that made me sad was that there were only 12 people at the matinee I attended. I felt as if the end of a golden era of film making would never be seen by millions of cinema lovers. Nowadays, because of the MTV and later generations, films have to be agonizingly loud and full of gratuitous action and violence in order to pack the theatres. That's tragic. A long film that gives time to absorb and really study the character of a complex man like Lawrence is one of the best cinematic experiences we can ever give ourselves. The film yesterday was close to 4 hours long and my companions and I had no idea that much time went by. Such magnificence, majesty, sweeping heroism and deeply flawed characters. A true study of human life.

A grand way to spend 4 hours, watching the 4K digital full-length movie on a big screen instead of the shortened version on a television screen that we are all familiar with. Awesome cinematography and all of it shot on location with real actors, no CGI! But the advertorials advertorials and newsreel clips and useless interviews shown before the movie were annoying and tiresome - please get rid of those.

I first saw this movie in the 60s shortly after it came out. To see it again, almost 50 years later - beautifully restored, was amazing. Stunning visual imagery - fantastic soundtrack - award winning acting - fabulous directing. One of the best movies ever!

Lawrence of Arabia

This was the first time I had seen Lawrence of Arabia since its original showing in 1962. Yep, fifty years ago! The terms "epic:" and "sweeping" could not be more appropriate when applied to this film. Yes, were it made today, it would probably be riddled with hi-tech effects, a more contemporary sound track. etc. Also, the infamous scene - way back then - of Jose Ferrar's ripping off Peter O'Toole's shirt, followed up by lusty leers would have been more vividly acted out. It didn't need more "realism:" We all got it back then and still do. Although slightly technically dated, this is film making of the highest order. Anyone who truly loves movies will truly love this remarkable film.
