Barry Lyndon

© Warner Bros. Pictures, 1975

This 1975 Stanley Kubrick masterpiece is still a feast for the eyes in every way. So lush, painterly and epic in it’s scope – it amazes us every time we view it. Of particular import, the genre changing scenes shot only with candlelight and a camera which Kubrick had specially rigged for the low light situations. Redmond Barry is indeed a cad, but the film is so incredibly gorgeous it will have you falling in love with everything that surrounds this unlikely protagonist in a way that surely even William Makepeace Thackeray would have applauded.
