Lawrence of Arabia
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.
