A peerless filmmaker of substance and scale, David Lean directs 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, and icebound dacha. Omar Sharif plays the title role, Julie Christie is his haunting, longtime love Lara and both are caught up in the tidal wave of history. Hauntingly scored by Maurice Jarre (who earned one of the film’s five Academy Awards) and full of indelible performances, Doctor Zhivago is a moviemaking wonder.
