Doctor Zhivago (1965)
Weak story and unpleasant characters in an excessively long film
The movie was too long, and the plot not exceedingly interesting. I have to admit that I found Lara a slut and Zhivago very unfaithful. And I agree with another commenter that the relationship between the main characters was much more sleazy than romantic. It is difficult to appreciate a movie when you can't bring yourself to like (or even not despise) the main characters with whom you're supposed to empathize. I always finish movies I've started, but there were multiple times during my viewing when I felt an urge to eject the DVD. The only things it had going for it were the art direction, costumes, and stunning cinematography.
My take: mice (though unjustifiably long)feast for the eyes, weak story, annoying protagonists. My vote: 5.5/10
