    Barry Lyndon was an Epic Masterpiece, I have never seen and probably never will see another film quite like it. Amadeus I feel is comparable in some slight ways on the level of authenticity. Barry Lyndon makes you feel like you are there. I personally feel the 18th Century was a very fascinating time and the way Kubrick captured it on film to me is just as beautiful as the Artwork that is so elegantly displayed on the walls within the magnificent Castles. Along with being entirely authentic in costume, setting and even the music, the acting also was outstanding. One character other than Barry Lyndon especially stands out in this film, Lord Bullingdon played incredibly by Leon Vitali, one of the most powerful scenes I have ever witnessed is the final duel in the abandoned chapel. The scene in which Lord Bullingdon "calls out" Barry Lyndon and receives an absolute thrashing is also one to remember especially considering the fact that Ryan O'Neal (Barry Lyndon) was before he became an actor a Golden Gloves boxer. In summary, if you have not seen Barry Lyndon I highly recommend that you do so. The film is over 3 hours but I'm sure many people would agree with me in wishing it was longer. An Epic Masterpiece that keeps your attention, even the dialog which in the cases of some 18th century period pieces can become tiresome, this film makes the dialog work and makes the people seem very authentic. The book from which the film was adapted was fictional, but the time and the place was real, the music which was played along with the instruments were all authentic to the period. I will close in mentioning one more scene of Kubrick genius, there is a scene toward the end of the film, Barry is reading to Bryan comfortably on a couch, the camera pulls back revealing the enormity of the room, the elaborate couch sits beneath a humongous Oil Painting.. One word describes this film, Masterpiece.

  • My favorite Kubrick's film

    I despite people who says that this movie is long and boring....How could they be bored watching this piece of art... This movie is not long. Like great movies, it felt short. Watching this movie, I am always reminded what a great art movie is, and how a story can be told in a bold way.

    Stanley Kubrick's excellent direction makes this a very must see film. The production is incredible. The art direction and cinematography are incredible, some of the best ever. The score is superb. Very well acted. I can get a little heavy at times but it's well worth it.
