Lawrence Of Arabia (1962)

What can I say?

An epic movie about a larger than life person, who driven by ego managed to unite warring Arab tribes against the Turks during World War 1.

If the house was on fire and I had to chose which film to save: This would be among the first three I would clutch to my chest an run outside to join my family. 

My (much better) half will probably shake her head....

The movie manages to capture the feeling of being lost between two worlds from T.E Lawrence`s 
(That`s Lawrence Of Arabias real name) book "Seven Pillars Of Wisdom" and the perpetual outsiders  alienation and struggle for identity.

I guess that`s what made this movie so appealing for me when I first saw it in the beginning of the nineties.
