Topic: Lawrence of Arabia

It got mentioned on here last week and that prompted me to sit and watch it again.  It's still a beautiful film and possibly the only film over 3 hours that I've ever had the patience to sit through.  In the age of minimal dialogue and CGI explosions, will cinema ever produce another masterpiece like this?

I score it 5 homo-erotic thrashings from a Turkish officer out of 5.

I'd offer you a beer, but I've only got six cans.

Seen it on the big screen when we lived in New York and they did a run of classic movies at one of the cinemas on the Upper West side. Stunning.
My dad wasn't in it either. I don't remember what my gran used to say when we went round. "Who wants tea?" Maybe?

Did everyone seriously let this pass?

He was out in Aden in the Army.  They used his infantry unit as extras in the train attack scene.  They had them piling down the big sand dune towards the train.

Re: Lawrence of Arabia

It's a great film and along with Zulu and Bridge over the River Kwai, one I never tire of watching.
