Dr. Zhivago

Posted by lori . No Comments

I’m a fan of Julie Christie’s and that’s what led me, many years ago, to Dr. Zhivago, director David Lean’s epic movie based on the novel by Boris Pasternak.  Dr. Zhivago is set before, during and after the Russian Revolution and the Russian Civil War.  It is a tale of idealism, principles and beauty ravaged by the brutality of war and revolution.  It’s a visually beautiful film filled with compelling characters, turbulent history, romance and love.  Style-wise there’s no denying that it was made in the 1960’s and that’s part of its appeal to me.  What is your favorite epic movie?
