Lawrence of Arabia – Two words: Awesome

5 out of 5 stars
Sweet Gethin what a movie. I rented it out a few months ago and was totally blown away, and I've just now bought it off Amazon, a bargain at £9.97. The makers of The Bridge on the River Kwai (also mint) bring you "A miracle of a film" (Steven Spielrock) about a dude called T.E. Lawrence who unites the Arab tribes against the Turks during World War I, whilst wearing a fabulous white outfit (pictured). You have to see this movie if you haven't already, a classic which is so good it gets away with having Alec Guinness (genuine class) play an Arab.

  3. Indeed, "Lawrence of Arabia" is one of the best films ever made! Breathtakingly stunning photography, and probably O'Toole's best ever performance! (?) I don't think even O'Toole in "What's New Pussycat" (also Woody Allen's first acting performance in a film) rivals it!

    If you want to see Alec Guinness in fantastic form check out "Kind Hearts and Coronets", where he plays eight characters! or even better still the original "Ladykillers" with Herbert Lom and Peter Sellers co-starring in the last ever Ealing comedy.
