How does an irish lad without prospects become part of 18th century english nobility? Any deceitful, diabolical way he can. An awesomely beautiful, hauntingly romantic adaptation of the classic book with a texture and feel unlike any other historical movie ever made.

Review "Stanley Kubrick's minor masterpiece is often overlooked -- even scorned -- by those who claim it to be pretentious and slow. Well, it is pretentious and slow, but it's still an exceptional film. In fact, it's probably my favorite period piece ever. Kubrick paints this film to look like an Old Master, with nary a hair out of place to take us from its early 1800s setting. It's gorgeous to look at, even if you don't dig Barry's story. But Ryan O'Neal turns in his best performance ever, bar none, as the title anti-hero, a middle-class Irish lad who joins the British army, finds success as a gambler, marries into money (and a heady title), and ends up duelling his stepson to the death. Barry -- over the course of decades -- ends up far worse than he began. His tragedy is a cautionary tale that speaks volumes even today. Hell, set it in New York in the 1990s-2000s, and you could make the exact same movie about Martha Stewart."

Review "Stanley Kubrick's ""Barry Lyndon"" is almost aggressive in its cool detachment It defies us to care, it forces us to remain detached about its stately elegance. Many of its developments take place offscreen, the narrator consistently tells us what's about to happen and we learn long before the film ends that its hero will die poor and childless. This news doesn't much depress us, because Kubrick has directed Ryan O'Neal in the title role as if he were a still life. It's difficult to imagine such tumultuous events whirling around such a passive character...Some people find ""Barry Lyndon"" a fascinating, if cold, exercise in masterful filmmaking; others find it a terrific bore. I have little sympathy for the second opinion; how can anyone be bored by such an audacious film, unless they've become such passive filmgoers that no movie can involve them unless it caters to them? ""Barry Lyndon"" isn't a great success, and it's not a great entertainment, but it's a great example of directorial vision: Kubrick saying he's going to make this material function as an illustration of the way he sees the world."
