Socialist critique/reviews of Dr. Zhivago

I'm looking for good socialist critiques and reviews of Dr. Zhivago, but I can't find any. I generally trust David Walsh of WSW and Louis Proyect of Unrepentant Marxist for movie reviews, but they haven't reviewed this Lean picture as far as I can find.

Sorry Yoda, I can’t give you a good socialist critique or review of David Lean’s Dr.Zhivago. The best review of the film I’ve read is by Dilys Powell in a collection of her articles published as ‘The Golden Screen’ (Headline 1989). I picked it up second hand, so it’s probably still available.

I find her writing concise, knowledgeable, and informative. She’s more interested in the films than projecting her own ego.
