  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

    Une somptueuse fresque mélodramatique entre trémolos larmoyants, émotions garanties et battements de coeur fréquents. Hormis une médiocre dimension politique, le film reste un agréable divertissement familiale souvent somptueux, difficilement ressenti dans son intégralité sur le petit écran d'une télévision... www.cinefiches.com

  3. Gabriele Malagoli's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

    4.5 I needed this re-watch so much, a true masterpiece

  4. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

    The MC at the Aero looked at the audience and asked "Why did you come here?", because it had sold out that night when it hadn't before. A woman in the back shouted "We need romance!" And so we do, both with upper- and lower-case Rs. Lean's film is not without kitsch, but he created an epic of poetic contrasts instead of action, a film about those who don't "make history" but suffer it, leaving behind nothing but art.

  5. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

    Omar Sharif has the kindest eyes I've ever seen.

  6. THE APOLL0's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

    Crams the events of February to October together in one sentence which is a historical compression of massive size yet Lean's subtle anarchist introspection into the characters is masterful to a degree that isn't to be expected from a massive scale Hollywood production this size. When it comes to characters, Omar Sharif gives a master performance as a man who can't bring himself to live his life.

  7. Ghostman's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

    One of the great film epics; its influence is incalculable & its storytelling masterful. It may not be historically accurate but its depiction of the Bolshevik Revolution is emotionally true & heartbreaking. It's an indictment against all authorities & its political views shows Lean's true sympathy was with anarchy (Kinski's bit was telling). Doctor Zhivago is Lean's masterpiece & one of the grandest films ever made.

  8. 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

  9. 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.

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

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

  11. LauraPalmer's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

    Rewatched and re-loved. Masterpiece.

  12. 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.

  13. anacecil's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

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

  16. Aardsy's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

    Turns out love and destiny are quite dull.

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

  18. 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

  19. 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.

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

    Worth the investment of your time.

  21. RoRoRoro's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

  22. Cinema Omnivore's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

    7.3/10, my review: http://wp.me/p1eXom-2iq

  23. 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.

  24. Sơn Phước's rating of the film Doctor Zhivago

    Sad movie with many unanswered questions.
