REVIEW: David Lean demonstrates again why he’s a peerless filmmaker of substance and scale, directing Boris Pasternak’s tumultuous tale of Russia divided by war and hearts torn by love. Epic images abound revolution in the streets, an infantry charge into No Man’s Land, the train ride to the Urals, an icebound dacha. Golden Globe Best Actor Award winner Omar Sharif plays the title role, in love with Lara (Julie Christie) and caught up in the tidal wave of history. Hauntingly scored by Maurice Jarre and full of indelible performances Doctor Zhivago is a moviemaking wonder. SPECIAL FEATURES: *Introduction by Omar Sharif *Audio Commentary by Omar Sharif, Sandra Lean and Rod Steiger.
