Peter O'Toole is absolutely brilliant as T.E. Lawrence in this beautiful epic about the Arab Revolt of WWI. The character is multi-faceted and intriguing, and the journey he makes pushes him and everyone around him to the limits of survival. It's hard to believe this story is true!
The cinematography is absolutely incredible. Only when seen in 70mm projection can you truly appreciate the vast expanses of desert, the mystery and beauty of the dunes and stars, and the way mere humans are dwarfed against the unforgiving sand and heat. This movie simply must be seen in theatres. If you ever have the opportunity to watch it on the big screen, GO!

The only way to view a movie as epic and timeless as Lawrence is on the big screen in 70mm, which I just had the incredible experience of doing.

setting a man's search for his identity in the middle of the arabian desert, david lean and cinematographer f.a. young (i think that's his name) create one of the most beautiful and gentle portraits of a confused and lost hero.
