Sherif Ali ibn el Kharish – Lawrence Of Arabia (1962)
The Entrance: First appearing as a cloud of dust on the horizon, then solidifying into a dark, moving shape, Sherif Ali’s (Omar Sharif) approach is eerily slow and all the more effective because of that.
Why So Awesome: The almost real-time approach works brilliantly to crank up the tension. Who is this guy? And what does he want out here in the middle of nowhere?
