Lawrence of Ara­bia

Metro Canada (Winnipeg) - - MOVIES -

David Lean’s ele­phan­tine study of T.E. Lawrence (Peter O’Toole, all coiled in­ten­sity and su­perblue eyes) de­mands to be seen on the big­gest screen pos­si­ble. But your mas­sive tele­vi­sion, over an HD sig­nal, should do in a pinch. Its peer­less desert im­agery tends to get all the press, but it’s also one of Hol­ly­wood’s most com­plex char­ac­ter stud­ies, ob­serv­ing a man driven by both heroic and less heroic ten­den­cies.
