Despite the grim and brooding background, Zhivago has a surging buoyant spirit that is unquenchable. Doctor Zhivago is more than a masterful motion picture; it is a life experience.

Yes it's old-fashioned and sappy. But it's impossible not to swoon.

Literate, oldfashioned, soul-filling and thoroughly romantic.

David Lean's 1965 adaptation of Pasternak's romance of the Russian Revolution is intelligent and handsomely mounted, though it doesn't use its length to build to a particularly complex emotional effect.

One of the most meticulously designed and executed films.

The best one can say of Doctor Zhivago is that it is an honest failure.
