A perfect companion piece to the David Lean epic!, 25 November 2003
Author: (ixtab9) from ixtab9

If you're like me, the film LAWRENCE OF ARABIA always leaves you hungering for more viewing material about T.E. Lawrence. Since documentaries sadly don't seem to appeal to all tastes this outstanding telefilm may satisfy your apetite. The movie deals with Lawrence's activities at the Paris Peace Conference following World War One and the cast is wonderful. Appropriate for material based on real events the film avoids hype and melodrama, keeping the viewer riveted with it's mature, intelligent approach. No matter what your politics it's intriguing to watch this movie and reflect on "what might have been" regarding relations between the Western Democracies and the nations being formed from the remains of the Ottoman Empire. The closing scene between Lawrence and Feisal nicely summarizes the sense of a monumental lost opportunity.

Program this film as a second feature the next time you watch LAWRENCE OF ARABIA for a wonderful marathon viewing experience.
