That's right. I'm in no hurry.

Those who are patient and wait for things have longer lives. Those who hurry rush thier lives away.


Just my own little philosophy.  ;)

That's a good philosophy. Keep it up and a woman like Jill McBaine will come into your life to make good coffee for you.

I think Lean is among the 10 best directors ever. LAWRENCE surely is as good as anything ever done on the medium film. Like Wyler, Kubrick, Peckinpah, Leone and those Top-talents he did everything for his art and combined with his skills (and those he 'casted', like John Box and Anne Coates) it shows. That's why other film makers other him (and those others), because they know how difficult it is to accomplish something like that.
ZHIVAGO is a love story, unfair to compare those two. Still a great film. KWAI is a masterpiece. So is GREAT EXPECTATIONS, OLIVERTWIST and BRIEF ENCOUNTER.
I try to catch him on the big screen as often as I can. It's easy not to fall on his 'big' films sitting on a couch in front of a 40 inch TV-screen. Years ago I saw BRAVEHEART in London at the Leicester Square Odeon (1700 seats ?), I loved it. I have the DVD, but I never watched it. To afraid to loose the cinematic impact  :)

I don't think Lean is too much off topic here. He made epics, Leone made epics. My favorite Peckinpah made only two or three epic films, but I think the best one :),
at least my favorite film ever.

While I dislike the film, I thought I'd share this charming and clearly affectionate parody of it somebody posted on the B3ta board today.

Bridge on the River Kwai is his best.

I think I've said it before, but for some reason I like Kwai significantly less upon subsequent viewings. The ending and the story lost their impact and power for me after the first few viewings. I still give it a 9, but it's below Lawrence and India in my book.

Ratings for Lean films:

In Which We Serve - 6/10
Brief Encounter - 8/10
Oliver Twist - 8/10
Kwai - 9/10
Lawrence - 10/10
Zhivago - 7.5/10
Ryan's Daughter - 8/10
India - 10/10

I'm not voting since I've only seen his main three epics ...but Kwai is the best.

  Kwai for me, followed by LoA.

  Completely off-topic, but what happened to Sanjuro?  He doesn't post anymore.  Anyone know why?

Out of the few I've seen, Dr. Z and Lawrence of Arabia being the other two... Bridge on the River Kwai was hands down the best.

Although his best movies are probably TBOTRK, DZ and LOA , my favorite was always Ryan's Daughter.
