Siendo del director de Lawrence de Arabia, Doctor Zhivago es una épica sobre la vida y obra de un doctor que vive las tragedias que asolaron Rusia anterior a la primera guerra mundial hasta la posguerra. Es una película muy lineal en términos de trama, con una calidad de documentación histórica muy detallada e interesante. Está basada en una novela que fue prohibida en la Unión Soviética p... read more

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

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.

“Siendo del director de Lawrence de Arabia, Doctor Zhivago es una épica sobre la vida y obra de un doctor que vive las tragedias que asolaron Rusia anterior a la primera guerra mundial hasta la posguerra. Es una película muy lineal en términos de trama, con una calidad de documentación histórica muy detallada e interesante. Está basada en una novela que fue prohibida en la Unión Soviética por décadas, y sabemos que por estos años se desarrollaba la guerra fría, así que material que pudiera tener una posición anti-comunista, material abrazado y promovido desde el bloque occidental. No se debe olvidar que otras producciones como Rebelión en la Granja eran financiadas por la CIA para darle mala imagen a ese ente.

What your favorite movie (really) says about you.. (57 movies items)

"If Doctor Zhivago is your favorite movie...You have read a few Russian novels, maybe Dosteovsky, maybe Bulgakov, maybe Tolstoy, maybe Gogol (maybe not). But, more importantly, you are a sucker for a grand love story, mixed in with sweeping and epic history and wonderful snowy and often-times verdant landscapes. You feel the romanticism of war, and duty; of love, and connection; of pain, and loss; and redemption, and fate. "

1001 Movies ... my own version (1960's) (107 movies items)

" 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. Indeed, it is way too much 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 though. I have to admit I haven’t read the book so I don’t know if it was a faithful adaptat"
