I had never seen this movie all the way through. Bits & pieces here and there. However, it is my husband's all time favorite movie, so, when I saw that it was going to be at the theater, I surprised him with tickets. Turns out I absolutely loved it!!

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 - Painful Extras

By andalou

Whoever set this up showing truly didn't think about their audience. I learned about the showing thru Fandango and was so very exited to see this movie. I was under the impression that since I was choosing an IMAX theater it would be shown on IMAX. There was nothing on the purchase page that indicated that it would be shown on a much, much smaller screen. Prior to showing the movie they ran a trailer for the movie I had already purchased. Next came the painful and long Martin Scorsese overview. This sucked because I had NEVER seen the movie and he stupidly mentions key points and shows key scenes of the movie. Next up was grainy footage from the release date. I showed up on time for a 3 hour movie on a mid-week night and had to sit thru 32 minutes of crap. Why this stuff wasn't left for the end is really beyond me. The movie was wonderful but they should have left the extras for the end.

I last saw Lawrence on the big screen in 1965. I love the movie and have it on DVD (the remastered box set). Had it on VHS before that. But there is no substitute for seeing it (and hearing it - the score is great) on the big screen. Since its been so long since I've seen the film version on the big screen, I couldn't comment on how the digital version would compare. But the desert scenes were still grand and made the story, which is a fantastic retelling of an interesting bit of world history. A bit of history which reverberates loudly today. And the story of an enigmatic Englishman. Very glad I went. Its still just as long!!
