The term classic is used a lot, but this movie personifies it. It's true cinematic perfection. I can't decide if it's the first of second greatest movie ever. It's length is pretty intimidating but it's so good that it rarely a factor in your enjoyment of the movie.

David Lean's epic biopic of the mysterious T.E. Lawrence is the very definition of perfection. The cinematography is as wondrously breathtaking today as it was then assisted by the film's epic yet haunting score in capturing the dark beauty of the desert . Peter O'Toole delivers a powerhouse performance that lingers with you no matter how much time has passed since your last viewing. This is one of those rare gems that any aspiring filmmaker should see because rarely does anyone achieve a feat like what David Lean had for this production.

Lawrence of Arabia es un hito del cine debido a su soberbio trabajo de fotografía y magistral desarrollo de personajes.

The difficulty with watching 'Lawrence of Arabia' is that it it hard to view almost any other film afterwards without feeling disappointed. Few films can bear comparison to David Lean's masterpiece. Steven Spielberg called it a 'miracle of a film'. Many highbrow French critics hated the film because Lean's artistic vision was so stunningly realised and yet it was so commercially successful. Noted French critic Andrew Sarris referred to it disdainfully as 'intimidating'. Yes, the film is intimidating to other film makers because Lean raised the bar so high, but it is also inspiring. It is an Art film that appeals to the masses.
'Lawrence of Arabia' is a four hour film that feels too short and it grips the viewer throughout.
What makes Lean's work even more impressive is that he made a populist movie about a man we never get to know. At one point, a soldier, on seeing Lawrence on the other side of the Suez canal, shouts across to him 'Who are you?' Lawrence stares blankly into space because he cannot answer the question. Almost every line of dialogue is dripping with sub-text. Every shot tells a story and every cut moves the story forward. A masterclass in film making.
Brilliant and awe inspiring.

this movie IS Peter O'Toole .if it was about any other actor ,the film would not be that great .fellow actors are amazing as well .the pictures ,the music ,and the madness that is T.E Lawrence save the film from being boring .however ,the film is so long ,and after a while ,it becomes denial.

wind, sand, the sheer genius and madness of trekking across the desert to sack Aqaba is paralleled to the sheer madness to make this film. This is one of a kind. O'Toole shows the brilliance of his acting, unparalleled.

Beautiful images, outstanding cinematography, an epic story, and a legendary film, I have been waiting to see this for years and I am disappointed at myself for not making time to see it sooner. While there are many great films now and the promise of the next great film, any person who loves films and all they have to offer in story, in acting, in imagery, and more need only look back to witness and appreciate Lawrence of Arabia.

This is my favourite film of all time and I think the greatest film ever made. It is majestic, sweeping, epic, and made with a whole lot of feeling. It just doesn't get any better than this.
