Excellent, Eye-Opening
26 June 2004 | by (Collegeville, PA) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent biography (via interviews and reenactments) of the life of T.E. Lawrence, focusing, of course, on his time in the Middle East during WWI. It shows how he helped the Arabs overthrow the Turks, only to be replaced with new masters, the English and the French. The resentments that the Arabs feel today towards the West is explained by the betrayals of the British (the Balfour Declaration) and the greediness of the French (the Syrian land-grab). Lawrence, himself, takes more of the blame upon himself than he deserves (the Arabs actually forgive and understand him more than he does). In other words, a very good real documentary, not the polemics foisted upon us today by a certain fat man. 9/10
