Doctor Zhivago

 (1965)

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, the National board of Review's Best Actress choice) and caught up in the tidal wave of history.

Doctor Zhivago Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5


The wonderful wizards of Warner have earned a reputation for investing a tremendous amount of time, money, and passion into meticulously restoring and rejuvenating the studio's most beloved catalog classics -- Gone with the Wind, The Wizard of Oz, Casablanca, North by Northwest, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and Blade Runner are just a few of the dazzling high definition rebirths that spring to mind -- and the Blu-ray edition of Doctor Zhivago does very little to betray that reputation. Its 1080p/VC-1 transfer breathes new life into Lean's romantic masterpiece, now forty-five years old. The lavish spectacle of cinematographer Freddie Young's palette has been preserved, his vibrant red-star primaries have retained their power, skintones are both pleasant and flattering, and contrast is altogether impressive. Though black levels aren't always as deep as modern filmfans have come to expect, it rarely hinders the impact of the photography. Likewise, while detail isn't as sharp or consistent as it is in the studio's best presentations, I suspect such shortcomings trace back to Lean and Young's photography, the age and era of the film, and the condition of the original print. Nighttime sequences sometimes suffer from softness and a general lack of fine textures, and a few shots have possibly been processed a bit too vigorously. That being said, the film's daytime exteriors, well-lit interiors, and sweeping landscapes and locales look fantastic. In each case, fabric and facial textures are more natural and apparent, edges are crisp and clean, overall clarity is satisfying, and grain is intact. I also didn't detect any distracting digital anomalies or notice any unreasonable print blemishes. Significant ringing, artifacting, banding, and aliasing simply aren't a factor, and scratches and nicks are few and far between.

Does the Blu-ray edition outclass every previous release of the film? Without a doubt. There's no comparison really. Do I believe Warner has done Doctor Zhivago justice? Absolutely. Will everyone gush over its transfer? Sadly, no. It will never be the flawless, razor-sharp marvel some high definition enthusiasts demand every release be. But that shouldn't prevent anyone from enjoying this beautifully restored tour de force or discovering a host of new sights in one of Lean's finest.


Doctor Zhivago Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5


From the opening bars of Jarre's overture to the fanciful strings that swell the moment Yevgraf declares, "then it's a gift," Doctor Zhivago's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track showcases another admirable aspect of Warner Brothers' excellent restoration. Honestly, I expected LFE output and rear speaker activity to be a wash, but even when Jarre's stirring score isn't billowing across the soundfield, the thunder of horse hooves, the somber snarl of departing trains, the unrelenting winds of a snow-blown hellscape, and the clamor of hurried crowds emerge from every channel, immersing the listener in Lean's Russia. Low-end tones lend welcome weight and heft to many a scene, and acoustics and environmental ambience are surprisingly authentic. Yet the mix never drifts too far of course; it never turns its back on its sonic roots. Front-heavy as it may sometimes be, it expands the experience without resorting to any transparent trickery. While I would have adored sampling the best of both worlds (the inclusion of a high-quality 5.1 track and a faithful, ideally lossless presentation of Zhivago's original audio mix would have been most appreciated), the studio's remix pays homage to the filmmakers' intentions and effortlessly enhances the tone and tenor of the film. If I have any complaint, it's that dialogue -- though robust, healthy, and smartly prioritized on the whole -- is occasionally tinny, shallow even, and several sound effects are notably shrill. Still, considering the age of the film and the condition of the original elements, it's hardly a concern. Not every lossless mix that graces a catalog classic measures up, but Doctor Zhivago's DTS-HD Master Audio track complements Warner's video transfer nicely. Personally, I'm delighted with the results.
