I have seen a number of movies about T.E. Lawrence, and found this one disappointing. I found myselft struggling to understand the dialog at times (or maybe it's because I was born and raised in Los Angeles). It seemed muffled and/or the actors were not ennunciating their lines clearly, including Ralph Fiennes. The director and producer really fumbled the ball by not demanding better of the actors and/or sound personnel. Also, there seemed to be too many talking heads and scenes of people sitting around big tables and talking. A straight documentary of the issues addressed in this movie would have been far better.
