Watched it with my 10 & 16yr old.
Bit too long and slow for my youngest but my eldest and I enjoyed the scenes and costumes.

As close to perfection as a movie can get.

I cannot count the number of times I've seen this film since it was made. Every time I come away with some new bit of information and realize the relevance to the area of land so in dispute over the past 100 years. 'The warring tribes' has no greater truth. I do not believe there will ever be peace there. The sooner America divests itself of any dependence, the better. However, we never learn.

This film has all the great actors of another lifetime, bigger than life.

Lean and photographer Fred A. Young have combined their artistic talents in an evocation of the Arabian desert that makes it both terrifying and deeply moving in its lonely grandeur.

A fun movie which might, hopefully, spark enough interest in watchers to cause them to read a few books about Lawrence and his exploits/times.

We can thank Lawrence in large part for a sizeable piece of how the Middle East is ruled today and by whom.

When I first saw it years ago, I thought it was BORING. After having read "Lawrence in Arabia" by Scott Anderson, I thought I should see it again. With a better historical context the movie was still BORING.

Great cinematography, especially for it being a dated film, the cinematography is often better than the films made in today's world. Supposedly, the book was much better, but I did not read that. I would have preferred a movie like this about camels and camel traders. Lawrence of Arabia is more of a fictionalized account of military action in the region. Great acting, scenery, script and overall filmmaking. I love the sand scenes.
