Movie Reviews

Lawrencemania!!
Terry Tozer | Reading, Bracknell, Brighton & Hove, UK | 08/07/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great & quite long documentary about Lawrence detailing his activities when he helped the Arabs create an uprising against the Turks during WWI. It was shown nearly 10 years ago on The History Channel for those lucky enough to have seen it.

It covers pretty much of his known life in detail from when he was a boy & then was assigned as a map clerk in Cario as a Captain & later of course his tragic death on his motor cycle.

From the asking price it looks as if it's becomming quite rare & who knows when they'll shown it on TV again for free?"

"Beautiful cinematography and I loved all the original newsreel footage dotted amongst the reenactments and interview snippets. It brought the whole story to life for me. Saw it years ago on television in Canada and really enjoyed it. Recently bought a copy for a friend of mine who thought it was excellent too."
