Lawrence of Arabia
- 222 min
- Directed by: David Lean
- Cast: Peter O'Toole, Alec Guinness, Anthony Quinn, Jack Hawkins, Omar Sharif
Lean's mammoth desert epic, restored to its director's original cut and the big screen, where filmmaking on this scale belongs. O'Toole's debut as the enigmatic adventurer still impresses, but apart from the majestic action sequences, it's the disturbing sense of clinical and cold-blooded violence hanging over the highly literate characterisation that today seems especially striking.
