Lawrence of Arabia by Kevin Jackson


Lawrence of Arabia by Kevin Jackson

Lawrence of Arabia is widely considered one of the ten greatest films ever made - though more often by film-goers and film-makers than by critics. This monograph argues that popular wisdom is correct, and that Lean's film is a unique blend of visionary image-making, narrative power, mythopoetic charm and psychological acuteness.


'...a facinating companion piece to the film...Lawrence of Arabia is a unique epic that is wonderfully detailed in this superb book by Kevin Jackson.' - Filmwork.co.uk'
