I have spoken of how seeing films like Ben-Hur, Blade Runner, and 2001: A Space Odyssey propelled films I have already loved higher up on my list of all time favorites, and how when I saw my favorite film Taxi Driver on the big screen it was a sublime and almost otherworldly experience.
THis has always been one of those movies for me that I put off watching for so long just because of it's near 4 hour runtime.
Lawrence learns a lot about himself, but in the end he's not at all satisfied, despite all the seemingly great things he achieves throughout the film and all the different stages of himself he gets to explore.
