David Lean was truly one of the greatest directors of all time! There are not words to describe the size of its ambition and artistry, far beyond his already gigantic technical expertise and visual storytelling abilities. But even tough he is known primarily for his epics, he was also able to bring an extremely intimacy to the characters, effortless transitioning between the macro of, for example, the huge desert of Lawrence Of Arabia, and the micro, the intimacy. At his best, he avoided the possibilita that the epic scope of his movies would make them shallow, working closely with his writers in each film, a man full of passion for the cinema.
His most notorious and critically acclaimed movies are:
- Brief Encounter (1945)
- Great Expectations (1946)
- Oliver Twist (1948)
- The Bridge On The River Kwai (1957)
- Lawrence Of Arabia (1962)
- Doctor Zhivago (1965)
