Last night I watched Doctor Zhivago for the second time, and I think it moved up considerably on my list of favorite films.
The first time I saw Doctor Zhivago, I had downloaded it onto my ipod and watched it on an itty bitty screen on a road trip. Although I enjoyed the movie, I wasn't able to fully appreciate it until I saw it on my slightly larger 19" television last night.
You don't watch Doctor Zhivago, you experience it. It is an enchanting, beautiful movie that just captivated me. The movie is famous enough that everything I could say has probably already been said (and much better than I could say it!) But I just had to write something. The movie has been on my mind every since I watched it last night, I can't shake it. It was breathtaking.
ps. I downloaded Lara's Theme on itunes for 99 cents - and I swear, if you listen to it with your eyes closed you can see the movie in your mind. It's magical.
