For the first few hours Doctor Zhivago is an absolute masterpiece. David Lean's depiction of one of the more tumultuous times in Russian history is breathtaking in its scope and touching in its story of a family trying to make it against large odds.

For me, the problems crop up when the movie becomes less of an epic scope and more of a personal romantic tale, detailing the relation... read more

Incredibly Boring

Calling a film 'boring' is such a complicated issue. It's never called boring, it's usually called tedious instead. I understand some may consider it a classic, but I do not. I think it was very boring, yes tedious, and most of all very overrated.

I was very eager to check it out because one of my favourite countries is Russia/Soviet Union, but sadly this film brought out the worst ... read more

FIRST IMPRESSIONS

Today's classic that I've finally got round to seeing is Doctor Zhivago.
It's a romantic epic in the same vein as Gone with the Wind: it's seemingly less about the romance and more about how the characters survive in a harsh war-torn world. In this regard, it works very well. I especially love the sequence where Yuri escapes from the partisans: you feel the ... read more

Set just before and in the years following the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, the film follows the life of Zhivago as he marries, raises a family, has his life totally disrupted by World War One, and then by the Revolution. Shown against the Epic of a world turned on its head, his life and freedom are torn from him as the new society makes demands.

" Notes: To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much from this flick but since it was directed by the great David Lean, I thought I should give it a chance. Honestly, I can think of a 1000’s reasons why I shouldn’t have liked this flick, it is way over-sentimental for my taste, the whole thing was far from being historically accurate and I could go on and on. Still, I really liked it. I mean, I haven’t read the book so I don’t know if it was a faithful adaptation but I really enjoyed this fl"

“This was a fantastic depiction of the events of the Russian Revolution as seen from the eyes of the people affected by it. In short, Dr. Zhivago got a pretty raw deal, as well as most of the Russians. It is concerning how quickly even a little bit of power goes to the head of those who wield it.

The romance of the story is tragic, and not completely a pure thing. For instance, Zhivago's wife is devoted, loyal, and loving, yet he cheats on her. Regardless, the characters do what they must to survive in a dreadful time and it is compelling to watch. 8/10” read more
