  1. José Neves's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

    35mm, re-rating. There is no going back: the young film buff i was has considered this film a pastry, and now i consider to be one of the best possible examples of an international overproduction. Why? For example, by the articulation's dialectic of the voice off with the dialogue in, or by the scenes in which the action is off being in by the look of a watching character. In addition to Lean's ability to frame

  2. SpacePirate's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

    Great editing at times, great direction (Lean 'the epic king'), and top notch performances elevate what otherwise might be a bit of a chore to sit through. There are tendencies of self indulgence, a bland story at bloated length, and sets that are very drab and bleak. All of these should turn the viewer away, but somehow it all works. Career defining for Christie and Sharif, and top 5 for Lean. 4 very solid stars.

  3. Julia Miville's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

    I really, really, really need to add this book to my reading list.

  4. LauraPalmer's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

    Rewatched and re-loved. Masterpiece.

  5. smndvdcl's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

    David Lean, renowned Scopemeister generale and (due to collaborations with Young) cinematographic extraordinaire, whose calling card is both his strength and weakness as an auteur. The exposition is at points unnecessary and languorous - a stricter editor could have transformed Zhivago into a masterpiece.

  8. Sara Sousa's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

  9. Aardsy's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

    Turns out love and destiny are quite dull.

  10. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

  11. Malte's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

    simply a magnificient love movie. With the russian history as backdrop. With great stereoptypical characters that you care about anyway

  12. Howard Orr's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

    The tumult of revolution, a grand love affair, magnificent sets and landscapes, death and violence; but for all that really quite bloodless and dull dramatically, and unconvincing as in any way a Russian saga. Rod Steiger and Klaus Kinski, going against type by resisting the urge to chew the whole of Russia, come out with most credit.

  13. Mark O. Stack's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

    Worth the investment of your time.

  16. Helena FW's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

    Looks cold. Rod Steiger is a standout.

  17. knockkneed's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

    The story's bleached, but the spirited way it's told compensates. It belongs on a curtained screen with a well-dressed crowd. Angelopoulos could have tamed this script.

  18. Sơn Nguyễn's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

    Sad movie with many unanswered questions.

  19. nein's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

  20. Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

    …aka the film in which Omar Sharif melancholically contemplates out of windows for three hours. There are a lot of incomprehensible choices made, especially for such a master of human dynamics such as Lean. Still, it's impossible not to be in awe of the film's scope and Freddie Young's breathtaking cinematography.

  21. msmichel's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

    David Lean's majestic epic telling of the Boris Pasternak novel seems to have gathered the reputation as one of screen's great films. However, the film seems often a simplistic telling of Russian history with its great love story being one between a woman of somewhat easy virtue and an adulterer. Fine film technically with memorable camerawork by Freddie Young and one of the great scores by Maurice Jarre.

  22. Lorena Brandão's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

  23. TFCHooligan69's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

    Magnificent. Beautiful. A true epic.

  24. David Slotema's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

    Russians speaking English may have worked 50 years ago, it didn't withstand the ravages of time. It makes it very hard to sympathize with any of the characters, which indeed, as mentioned before, makes this movie too cool. A pity..
