Two Line Reviews - #150

Movie: Lawrence of Arabia (1962)

Plot: A british soldier who has an uncompromising love for desert and an unshakable will unites the different Arab sects in their war against the Turks and at some point, he gets fed up of the desert and his killings and the politics surrounding Britain and Arabia makes things worse , mentally,for him.

  • The film has 'EPIC' written all over it. The unbelievable capture of deserts, the travel travails & war action in the desert are terrific to say the least.
  • The awe-inspiring theme music that runs throughout the film.
  • The character of Lawrence is brilliantly etched & the first scene (where two ppl offer two views on him) finds its meaning after the last scene in the film!
  • Peter Toole & Omar Sheriff have done very well in their prominent roles.
The politics in the last 30-40 minutes could have been explained clearer. It was vague.

My Rating: 9.6/10
