Doctor Zhivago is number 36 on the American Film Institutes (AFI)'s Top 100 Films of the Last 100 Years.This visually rich film plunges the viewer into the totally different, exciting, and dangerous world of the early twentieth century.
Based on Boris Pasternak's Nobel Prize-winning novel, Doctor Zhivago is a sumptuous, absorbing epic in the grand tradition of filmmaking.
Omar Sharif, Julie Christie, Geraldine Chaplin, Rod Steiger, Alec Guinness, Tom Courtenay, Siobhan McKenna, Ralph Richardson, Jeffrey Rockland
David Lean, who is best known for his "Lawrence of Arabia" work, scores another hundred on this film.
Sharif and Christie are ravishing to watch, as Lean turns an earth-shattering moment in world history into high romantic drama.
Brimming with unforgettable images of the Russian steppes captured by Oscar-winning lensman Carlo Ponti, Lean's snowy, romantic spectacle is just what the "Doctor" ordered, with marvelous ensemble work by Rod Steiger, Alec Guinness, Tom Courtenay, and Klaus Kinski.
On reviewing this movie, I find it to be a conservative film, but do not take my word for it! take a look yourself and let me know what you think.
