4. A Crowd Is Massacred In Doctor Zhivago

Mmm. Peaceful protests really are the best kind of protests if you’re looking to kill a bunch of people. The real twist of the knife happens before the fact, when we see just how proud and happy the crowd is up until the moment that they are so violently dispersed. Of course, when that time comes we see something far worse than any bloodshed could convey – the eyes of a man watching it happen.

Oh, Omar Sharif, if my ability to make analogies were as good as your acting then this sentence would be a lot better. The man expresses more in his sunken eyes than any amount of spectacle could have. This, and the cries of the fallen is all we get – and it’s more than enough.
