49. Lawrence of Arabia (1962)
There may be honor among thieves, but there's none in politicians.
If you look up Historical Epic in the dictionary, you would see Peter O'Toole's bright blue eyes piercing through the desert. This movie does take some time and commitment on the part of the viewer, but if one completely gives in to the film an entire afternoon's treat of swashbuckling escapism, moving drama, and political commentary still relevant today will be their reward.
