Audience Reviews for Barry Lyndon

  • May 01, 2014
    A fabulous picaresque tale - satirical and tragic - in which we see Kubrick make every splendid shot look like an authentic 18th-century painting while using a cynical and essentially cold approach to recount a long series of barely connected episodes in our anti-hero's ill-fated life.

    My favorite Kubrick film by far. Epic story with fine costumes and sets -- and a soundtrack to die for.
    Christian C Super Reviewer

    Barry Lyndon is a fantastic epic helmed by Stanley Kubrick that boasts great performances and revolutionary and beautiful direction.

    Is anyone better at skewering bourgeois culture and plumbing the depths of the inevitability of loss?
