If you haven't, you should watch 'Lawrence of Arabia'. Same director and shit. And, although it's kinda overlong, it's easily one of my favorite movies of all time. I'd love to see you gonna think of it.

I've seen Lawrence and its about 63rd(?) on my chart. I love everything about that movie as well, even the length doesn't bother me! Such an emotionally satisfying movie with a great main character and huge ambitions!
