I said a lot about Doctor Zhivago in previous entries, so I won't say too much tonight. I watched the second half of the movie tonight and have just one complaint to register. The characters exited the movie so abruptly. That character's dead, forget about them. That character went far away, forget about them. That character disappeared, forget about them. The filmmakers should have just ended the movie at Zhivago smashing the window and looking outside, then concluded with the characters shown looking at the camera, one at a time, with a narrator saying what happened to each of them in later years, for all of the detail that they got. Anyway, it was still a good movie, a low "it ruled."
