5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Sequel to LoA.........!!, 15 July 2007
Terry Tozer "" (Reading & Bracknell, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: A Dangerous Man: Lawrence after Arabia [VHS] [1992] (VHS Tape)
Although quite a rare film to get a hold of now & out of print, this is one of Ralph Fiennes early successes on the big screen. Although playing our GREAT hero Lawrence completely differently to Peter O'Toole, I think Ralph does a wonderful job of portraying Lawrence's personality (assuming all that we read is true of this iconic legend?)

The story here is about what happened after the defeat of the Turks in Transjordan and what the Ottoman Empire was then. How the great expanse of this area was split up, why it was split up & who were involved in the [fatal?] decision making behind creating the countries that exist in the Middle East today. It will probably help you understand the present conflicts out there and may get you to question whether what happened was in the true interests of those living there? Namely Iraq, Iran, Syria, Jordan, Israel, Lebanon & Saudi Arabia.

As Ralph discovers half way through the film it's all about power, money & of course Oil.

Not as long as "Lawrence of Arabia" it is worth its weight in gold as it compliments the original film.
