I just watched the entire second half of Dr. Zhivago without realizing that I was only watching the second half of a movie. It occurred to me that there were curiously no opening credits, and there seemed to be a lot of established relationships that I had to piece together, but still, I had no clue that I didn’t start at the beginning. Curse those confusing double-sided DVDs!
When Dr. Zhivago died just one hour into the film, I was thinking “gee, what are they going to do with the remaining two and a half hours without the main character?” But still, it didn’t hit me until the closing credits started rolling. I thought about flipping the disc over and watching the first half, but I just don’t have it in me now.
This does not bode well for the rest of my weekend.
