Lawrence of Arabia (Movie)

The Incomparable 489: He Likes Your Lemonade

Old Movie Club finally takes on the big one, David Lean’s 1962 epic “Lawrence of Arabia.” Sand! Endurance! Men! Camels! Violence! Anticolonialism mixed with racism! Omar Sharif redefines thirst in the desert! The real romance in the movie without romance! This is a movie that builds myths with one hand and undermines them with the other. This episode has no overture, but there will be a brief intermission.

Jason Snell with Philip Michaels, Erika Ensign, Dan Moren and Mois├ęs Chiullan
