David Lean's splendid biography of the enigmatic T.E. Lawrence paints a complex portrait of the desert-loving Englishman who united Arab tribes in battle against the Ottoman Turks during WWI. Full Review

New Times (L.A.)
Released in 1962, it was pretty clearly the most intelligent spectacular within living memory. On its 40th anniversary, it's even better. Full Review
Bosley Crowther
The New York Times
For the most part, Nino Rota's music provides a rich melodic surrounding for the pictorial magnificence, and a heretofore unknown Verdi waltz that is played at the ball at the finish appropriately supplements this remarkably vivid, panoramic, and eventually morbid show. (Review of Original Release) Full Review
David Sterritt
Christian Science Monitor
In short, they don't make 'em like this one anymore. Viewing it is like taking a time machine to a movie age that was more naive than our own in some ways, more sophisticated and ambitious in others. Full Review

Washington Post
Watching this masterwork allows you to return to the filmmaking sensibility of the 1960s, when epics looked like epics. Full Review
