Lawrence of Arabia is one of the most intelligent and beautifully shot movies of all time thanks to the exceptional direction by David Lean

Not to mention the top of the line acting

9.5 out of 10

10/10

As you say - the acting was superb from top to bottom, and David Lean's direction was spot on.

Then there is the cinematography by Freddie Young - a master of the art - on Super Panavision 70, the format that gave us West Side Story, Exodus, 2001, Close Encounters and a host of other classics. Gorgeous.

A true masterpiece that should be seen on a big screen at any opportunity. WOW....
