Lawrence of Arabia. David Lean. 2017. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
The desert portions are visually breathtaking and thematically rich. Everything else suffers in comparison. The amount of masculine energy, the various ways it's portrayed... very unique in that regard... that aspect would be fun to do a deep dive into. The politics? Meh. I guess there's ambiguity embedded in the murky inconsistency, which is better than nothing. Curious to read source material, other histories, etc.
