Lawrence of Arabia (David Lean, 1962)

 Dromedaries and their spindly legs, flying over endless sand dunes

There’s something about the desert. It’s a place of lone meetings, where magic blows on the hot wind and where you can truly lose and find yourself. Desert settings have an irresistible pull, whether it’s in Aladdin; Jesus Christ Superstar; A New Hope; The Good, The Bad & The Ugly; or this Lawrence of Arabia.

Interstellar (Christopher Nolan, 2014)

 Rage, rage against the dying of the light (spoiler notice)

Interstellar has become kind of a frustrating film experience. It's not what you've come to expect from Christopher Nolan, nor does it live up to... well, the thing it aspired to be. From the trailers, the concept, its whole air. Interstellar should have been a rousing appeal to look up at the stars and dream, what Gravity so successfully did in a way, and (if you'll excuse my nerdiness) Babylon 5 achieved at its greatest moments.
