Doctor Zhivago

Visually impressive in a picture postcard sort of way. Otherwise an interminable emasculation of Pasternak's novel, seemingly trying to emulate Gone With the Wind in romantic vacuity as Russia is torn by revolution and Sharif's Zhivago moons on about the elusive love of his life. Steiger and Courtenay excepted, all the performances are very uncomfortable.
