Editor's Note
David Lean's DOCTOR ZHIVAGO is an exploration of the Russian Revolution as seen from the point of view of the intellectual, introspective title character (Omar Sharif). As the political landscape changes, and the Czarist regime comes to an end, Dr. Zhivago's relationships reflect the political turmoil raging about him. Though he is married, the vagaries of war lead him to begin a love affair with the beautiful Lara (Julie Christie). But he cannot escape the machinations of a band of selfish and cruel characters: General Strelnikov (Tom Courtenay), a Bolshevik General; Komarovsky (Rod Steiger), Lara's former lover; and Yevgraf (Alec Guinness), Zhivago's sinister half-brother. This epic, sweeping romance, told in flashback, captures the lushness of Moscow before the war and the violent social upheaval that followed. The film is based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Boris Pasternak.

By: Dusty Somers Blogcritics.org Reviews
Published on: 5/13/2010 7:50 PM
Epic films have their share of inherent flaws. They often tend to lack nuance despite the sublimity that their grand scope all but ensures, but David Lean discovered that he could have it both ways and created some of the most memorable epics ever — both magnanimously stirring and intimately personal. While Doctor Zhivago doesn’t quite get the same adoration that Lean’s The Bridge on the River Kwai or Lawrence of Arabia do, it’s a film that’s in the same class, and it achieves a visual grandeur that has been rarely matched for its sumptuousness....read the full review
