cinema review: Lawrence of Arabia (1962)
There is a reason this film won 7 Academy Awards. The cinematography alone is phenomenal. Then the all-star cast is like Jordan's dream team that won a gold medal in basketball. The line-up was phenomenal. As the wiki entry notes, the movie made compromises for the sake of storytelling and mis-represented some of the history. Standing alone, though, Wow. The Smart Mom who hasn't blogged in a long time and I watched it over 3 nights. It's over 3 and a half hours long. For more information on T. E. Lawrence see the wiki.
