Was fortunate to see this on the big screen during a re-release several years ago. A true epic. Well worth the accolades.

I saw a version of this on TV with all the boring political talking cut out. It was just camel riding and shooting. From the comments here, I think many people would enjoy it that way.

The Lawrence character just cracks me up.

Watched it with my 10 & 16yr old.
Bit too long and slow for my youngest but my eldest and I enjoyed the scenes and costumes.

As close to perfection as a movie can get.

I cannot count the number of times I've seen this film since it was made. Every time I come away with some new bit of information and realize the relevance to the area of land so in dispute over the past 100 years. 'The warring tribes' has no greater truth. I do not believe there will ever be peace there. The sooner America divests itself of any dependence, the better. However, we never learn.

This film has all the great actors of another lifetime, bigger than life.

Lean and photographer Fred A. Young have combined their artistic talents in an evocation of the Arabian desert that makes it both terrifying and deeply moving in its lonely grandeur.

A fun movie which might, hopefully, spark enough interest in watchers to cause them to read a few books about Lawrence and his exploits/times.

We can thank Lawrence in large part for a sizeable piece of how the Middle East is ruled today and by whom.

Iy was O.K. For the most part it was VERY SLOW.

When I first saw it years ago, I thought it was BORING. After having read "Lawrence in Arabia" by Scott Anderson, I thought I should see it again. With a better historical context the movie was still BORING.

T.E. Lawrence: Do you think I'm just anybody, Ali? Do you?
