Synopsis:
How does an Irish lad without prospects become part of 18th-century nobility? For Barry Lyndon (Ryan O'Neal) the answer is: any way he can! His climb to wealth and privilege is the enthralling focus of this sumptuous Stanley Kubrick version of William Makepeace Thackeray's novel. For this ravishing, slyly satiric winner of four Academy Awards, Kubrick found inspiration in the works of the era's painters. Costumes and sets were crafted in the era's designs and pioneering lenses were developed to shoot interiors and exteriors in natural light. The result? Barry Lyndon endures as a cutting-edge movie that brings a historical period to vivid screen life like no other film before or since.

Barry Lyndon - Barry Lyndon review by TD

Spoiler Alert

Excellent overall. I can understand why it was not liked when first released,because I think that the main player was slightly miscast, but he grew on me.

The direction & cinematography were superb, with each shot like a painting.

A tragic tale,but worth watching to the end.
