Lawrence of Arabia

 It's necessary to watch  Lawrence of Arabia in this period of history,  read about the actual historical events  and analyze it from a new perspective.

The movie is made against the background of decolonization in 1970s. It should have been a very good chance to reflect on the West’s barbarous colonization in the past few centuries. However, instead of taking the lead, Lawrence of Arabia seems to serve to deepen our oriental conceptions/misconception of the East."

Nabil Al-Tikriti will address some points in his talk in this link.
