David Lean

David Lean

I think people remember pictures not dialogue. That’s why I like pictures.

David Lean is a director I initially disliked, but after I saw Lawrence of Arabia I became more interested in his work. After seeing some of his smaller, earlier films, I became curious to see how he evolved from these small scale black and white films to towering epics. Hopefully once I finish his filmography, I’ll have an answer.
