The Two Movies Cillian Murphy Watched To Prepare For Oppenheimer

The Two Movies Cillian Murphy Watched To Prepare For Oppenheimer

The first film on Murphy’s list: David Lean’s massive 1962 epic “Lawrence of Arabia.” The film stars Peter O’Toole as T. E. Lawrence and follows his journey uniting Arab tribes during World War I. It’s often held up as one of the best movies ever made, and it covers a huge amount of ground in its lengthy runtime. As Roger Ebert wrote, “For a movie that runs 216 minutes, plus intermission, ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ is not dense with plot details. It is a spare movie in clean, uncluttered lines, and there is never a moment when we’re in doubt about the logistical details of the various campaigns.”

Murphy says he watched “Lawrence of Arabia” “in terms of the scale and the life-story aspect,” and that makes a lot of sense. Like “Oppenheimer,” “Lawrence of Arabia” is a biopic that doesn’t really feel like a traditional biopic. It’s not a cradle-to-the-grave story, but rather a glimpse into a period in the life of its main character. Nolan takes a similar approach to “Oppenheimer,” zeroing in on specific times in Oppenheimer’s life rather than telling his complete life story.
