You might not have heard yet, but Barack Obama is the new leader of the free world.
In the post-election media blather, plenty of people have been asking questions about the challenges ahead for O-ba-ma.
How's he going to convert his promises into policies? Who’s going to fill his cabinet? How long will it take for his hair to turn white after he reads the secret CIA Files on terrorists and robots and zombies and that?
But, most importantly, what are his favourite films and what might they mean for the rest of the world? We'll take this one...
Lawrence Of Arabia (1962)
Maverick British soldier attempts to unite Arab world, becomes legend.
What does it mean? Essentially Obama’s ‘Yes we can!’ mantra in film form – Lawrence’s combination of pure willpower and tough hope ensures he achieves his goals, uniting disparate parties and reclaiming lost land in the process.
If Obama learns the right lessons from Larry, he’ll bring peace to the Middle East (for a bit). Then move on to the tougher proposition of uniting the Senate.
