SCREENING

Doctor Zhivago

Ongoing

Cinematographer: Freddie Young 

Dir. David Lean. 1965, 197 mins. 35mm. With Omar Sharif, Julie Christie, Geraldine Chaplin, Rod Steiger. Grand-scale moviemaking became Lean’s forte in the sixties, and Doctor Zhivago was among his grandest triumphs. Based on Boris Pasternak’s novel, this tale of a love triangle set against the Bolshevik Revolution is an astonishing feat, as emotionally involving as it is visually spectacular. Highlights include Freddie Young’s Oscar-winning cinematography and Maurice Jarre’s iconic score.
