"Lawrence of Arabia (1962)" Movie Review Essay & Film Analysis

"Lawrence" looked. This is certainly not a film, and shock.
When Lawrence was the last time he returned to Arabia, before going on to Damascus, I watched all these Arabs, half of which were "bought", who chanted "Lawrence!" And I I wanted to cry, did not even cry, howl. Howl like a wolf.
And after "Stop, Lawrence, stop!" I sobbed. Because this is not how it was supposed to be all, it is wrong, it's terrible
«He has gone mad, gone mad." - spun in my head, and, god knows, it was so
There is something beautiful to anticipate hopelessness. You see in every gesture, glance and a frame that is so, what is the only way and nowhere on it does not go. "Everything is predestined," - you see
At the beginning of the movie in my head crept an idea:. "How can he be the British Empire and defend the rights of the Arabs genuinely be for the Arabs. At the same time as he can fight with the Arabs for them, the Arabs, the interests that are actually opposed to the interests of England. Renounce the homeland? To bring those who believe in it, those who have entrusted their lives and hopes it?. »
« Traitor. From both sides "- flashed through my head. And so it happened. He is a stranger everywhere -. Both at home and in the desert
hard for me to somehow structure their thoughts, because everything that I feel right now -. This devastation
No, I do not regret that I spent four hours of your time in this film, because in the end I feel that in my head that something turned over, something has changed, there has been something of what is required to realize and put on the correct shelves. But still it is difficult to draw any conclusions, since you're still there - in this world and these characters, in this atmosphere -. The prevailing emotion is still emptying
For what it was all? Is it worth it? What's ahead? Did he do the right thing? - a lot of questions and no answers. Emptiness.
very difficult to organize anything, but here is what immediately comes to mind.
This is the second film by David Lean, which I looked. Some banal things like "the master's hand is felt in everything." In fact, what I want to note right away so it's a perfect visual range. I think it can be considered a feature film director. Just remember the footage of the "Summer" beautiful which I have not seen. Half an hour spent on something to get used to this visual luxury. Again.
astonishing depth and dramatic image of the desert. (Honestly, the desert always naturally associated with emptiness, non-action, there is a very different image of the desert - a more than dynamic). Different kinds of landscapes, from breathtaking. By this really need to get used
first part left me with more positive emotions -. Maybe because it seems that everything is still good. Perhaps the freshness of perception plays a role (after two hours of viewing is more difficult to perceive the information). Anyway, you feel an emotional lift -. Good Lawrence, cute, brave, glorious Lawrence
He went into the desert, he is not afraid to proclaim their principles, to talk about them "barbarians, wicked, cruel Arabs»
". my name is for my friends. " You should not kill, but do not grovel. You need freedom, I will give you her - freedom. And if the prophet (not without reason, that the alleged role of Lawrence so often played out in the movie from different angles - the same references to Moses), he leads them into the desert
After a sleepless night, and walking through the desert like Jesus himself, he exclaims -. At Aqaba, to Aqaba!
Fifty men of the Arabs and he leads them. And he hopes for a miracle, hoping to do the impossible, full of enthusiasm, supported by the fact that he accomplishes his destiny.
After a long journey it is found that one of the Arabs lost. Reach and pointless to worry about who is missing, because it will not return. He would soon die, he is already dying, Lawrence. We arrived before sunset, we made the impossible, is not it worth a life? You can not do anything. Everything ... is destined.
sudden movement by turning the horse, he resolutely went to the other side. He rescues Gasim. He is the guiding light Daud, the light at the end of the tunnel, a prophet and a savior. First weakened and lost all hope of survival in this lonely desert, Daoud gradually accelerates, more and more, moving toward that barely distinguishable figure, this lighthouse.
Frankly, this moment was so emotional for me, that I almost I cried. And this, of course, thanks to the music. The famous theme is Lawrence here many times - officially, heralding the emergence of a hero, barely discernible - foretelling a great future, and it sounds terrible omen and malicious mockery. Audio series are just as rich and intense, like a number of visual. Here are the traditional oriental motifs, and here sharp military marches. In general, music in "Lawrence" is an important emotional component. It should be be such in all the movies, but not all music so well to cope with their role in this movie.
Yet Lawrence returns to Aqaba with rescued companions. Ali had never believed in the success of the company and already buried a stranger, comes to meet him, holding up a flask of water.
Generally this scene, exactly like a scene preceding it, as well as follow-up is very interesting. They show that Lawrence and Ali are very close.
When Lawrence says his intention to return, in order to save extinguished, then Ali is furious. "Where have you brought us, vile anglichanishka! For what? For the sake of Aqaba? Answer me, for the sake of Aqaba? You will not get in Aqaba! ". Wrong, damn!
But you will not get in Aqaba! - almost in tears, implored Ali
But all these curses only "Do not go mean.. Stay, because you will die. You will die, I know. But I do not want that! Please stay here. »
Fierce" Englishman! Englishman!". Perhaps this is one of the best scenes of the film.
So he returned. In spite of everything managed to do it. Choose his own destiny. A man totally different cast burst into their life and turned it upside down - "Nothing is predestined!" - proudly says Lawrence before fainting from weakness
and Ali met him, greets him as an equal, meets. him as a brave and decent.
