And Now For Something Completely Similar: Lawrence After Arabia

Brendan and Jason go back to films somewhat related to movies on the BFI Top 100 with And Now for Something Completely Similar.

Following the legendary Lawrence of Arabia (#3 on the list), the guys talk about the follow-up nearly thirty years later – Lawrence After Arabia starring Ralph Fiennes in the title role. They discuss the difficulty of following up a war epic with a very small-scale movie, Brendan wonders if there is a homoerotic tinge to the relationship between Lawrence and Faisal, they talk about the movie’s weak attempts to mimic the original and more.

Next week: The guys continue the non-BFI Top 100 journey by talking about the 2006 remake of The Wicker Man.
