This week we travel to the clean deserts of the Middle East to experience the true adventures of Lawrence of Arabia. We argue about the virtues of a film based on true events. We also attempt to tie a bow on our regular discussion on the cultural sins of historical Hollywood.
Next week we will watch and discuss both the last epic on our list and arguably the newest epic to be made: 2009’s Avatar. We will talk about how the film somehow both fizzled and sizzled in its impact.
