#698: Lawrence of Arabia / Top 5 David Lean Moments
« on: September 21, 2018, 03:04:52 AM »
A new 70mm print of David Lean's 1963 Best Picture-winning epic just wrapped up a run at Chicago's Music Box Theatre. Having survived their recent "4D" screening (temperamental A/C on a blisteringly hot late-summer day), Adam and Josh return from Lean's "Arabia" in awe of the director's widescreen compositions, his revelatory transitions and the film's complicated take on hero worship and British exceptionalism. That Sacred Cow review, plus more praise for Lean with the Filmspotting Top 5: David Lean Moments.
