Graham's Review of Lawrence of Arabia
Lawrence of Arabia(1962)
Sprawling epic in every sense. From the 1000s of extras, to the cinemascope photography, to the 227 minute length (it does go on a touch.)
Peter O'Toole shines in the lead. Hard to imagine that it is his first leading role. The supporting cast is exceptional to. Omar Sharif as sheriff Ali is a particular triumph. HIs character being most affected by Lawrence as they seemingly do a swap of morals.
Warning. This film contains no women!
