A classic for everyone to see but be prepared for a very long and somewhat boring movie. Nothing like movies today. About 4 hrs with intermission. Based on a true story so that does keep you awake. Otherwise it would be a sleeper.

One of the greatest films in the history of cinema, shown on the big screen at AFI in the amazing restored 70 mm print. A huge and very sophisticated audience. As an additional treat, the film editor of Lawrence of Arabia, Anne Coates was in the audience and gave a short talk about working with David Lean to create this masterpiece. This was a unique experience, and all credit to AFI for offering wonderful and rare events like this.

A fantastic movie, and one that has to be seen on the big screen
for full effect. The cinemaphotography is gorgeous, the acting is
very accomplished, and the story is of course, a classic.

Despite some parts American audiences may find a little slow, this film (almost 50 yrs old) holds up nicely. Definitely worth it if just for the scene where he rescues Gassim from the desert. If you have the chance to see this in the original 70mm, go.
