A Life Of Adventure

Film Review: "Lawrence of Arabia" (1962)

This 215-Minute-Epic divided into two parts with classic overture by Academy-Award-winning score composer Maurice Jarre (1924-2009) and an Intermission after 135 Minutes establishing the dramatized biopic-story of real-life character T.E. Lawrence (1888-1935), who raises from a simple foot-soldier corporal in dusty little basements to Colonel of "The British Army", portrayed by an high-tense internal-conflicts of identity performing as shaping actor Peter O'Toole (1932-2013), introduced by director David Lean (1908-1991) and producer Sam Spiegel (1901-1985), both at this point in their careers already honored with an Academy-Award for Spiegel producing "On The Waterfront" (1954) starring Marlon Brando and Lean directing the also magnificent "The Bridge On The River Kwai" (1957) starring Alec Guinness (1914-2000), who portrays here another memorable part for David Lean in "Lawrence of Arabia" as modernism-indulging Arabian Prince Feisal with heavy but believable make-up effects and vocal diversions, when supporting character Feisal sets inner motions into action by speaking directly onto bird-free character of 28-year-old Lawrence in times of "The Great War" aka World War I (1914-1918) as the fate of a uncompromising raw man takes its turns by leading sections of Prince Feisal only horse-and-sword trained army into battles of guerilla warfare in the desert regions of now all-splintered Syria, where merciless killings are not as seldom in width as depths of extraordinary on-location cinematography by F.A. Young (1902-1998), also known for shooting "007: You Only Live Twice" (1967) for director Lewis Gilbert, when further the relentless in-sucking CinemaScope framing, especially in horizon to mirage in-camera effects to favor the throughout intense as playful performances by Omar Sharif as Ali and Anthony Quinn as scene-towering character of Auda Abu Tayi.

"Lawrence of Arabia" takes its hypnosis on any spectre, who brings patience and will to comprehend the story-driven metamorphosis of Peter O'Toole becoming T.E. Lawrence; a character manifested into strong personal believes of pushing efforts to the extreme in crossing never-been undertaking endeavors of conquering coast city Aqaba in minimized editorial shot-rates by editor Anne V. Coates, who gives the picture utmost of elegance in plenty of desert action scenes of bombing Turkish-army-conducted trains from their railing, massive crowd of extras in rifle, pistol, knife combats and up, close and personal character confrontations, in another superior-suspense-scene in a besieged city of Medina, where Lawrence must endure references in physical torture and for the period of time daring winks of unresolved homosexuality in an show-stopping portrayal of actor José Ferrer (1912-1992) as Turkish Bey, remarking of being surrounded by orders-taking cattle, while leaned-back as professional puppet masters actor Jack Hawkins as campaign-leading General Allenby and reptile-lingering politics-representing business man Mr. Dryden, performed with charms and inverted hostility alike actor Claude Rains (1889-1967); when director David Lean concludes every scene with perfection by interweaving them into the next, as legendary PRE-"2001: A Space Odyssey" (1968) straight jump cut from an extinguishing match to a desert sunrise, when I can only wish you the best possible exhibition format for a day-taking blast of motion picture extravaganza from every film-making department involved in this Native English major scale production of slowly high-stakes building main character favoring story-line, exclusively in continuous world-wide distributing Hollywood studio Columbia Pictures, now affiliate of The Sony Company, too even more critical acclaim nowadays, justifying the 10 Academy-Award nominations and 7 wins at the Oscars ceremony in its 36th edition of year 1963, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Music Score.

Simply a great film!

Because of its length, I always postponed watching this film. But now that I've finally seen it, I regret postponing it. This film is visually a masterpiece. The scene where the army rides through the town is extraordinary. It is real, no CGI. Pure film.

If you want films with realism, you'll love this.

I fell asleep...

"Time does things to movies". That's what my mother told me when I was a child. Steven Spielberg said the same. All my teachers too. And I totally agree, especially when I watched Lawrence of Arabia. Time had made too many things to this "incomparable" picture.

During the last forty minutes of this film, I've got sleep. It was so, so dull, so uncolored, so long... What else could I say? If this film is so good, I suppose that I was for the ones who lived in its times.

Now, Lawrence of Arabia is one of the best films in history and also some people say that it's the best film ever. Honestly, I prefer to be in silence and think that this film is such a good one, but not the best. And, otherwise, for me, this isn't more than an overrated picture and I totally regret of have seen it.
