One of my all-time movie technical favs-The English countryside never looked better than it did in master director Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon (1975). Oscar winning here cinematography by John Alcott shows us this beautiful world to the tunes of great classical music while the very engaging off screen narrator (Michael Hordern) tells us how ugly life was there along with a lot of low down gossip about social climber Ryan O’Neal and Lady Lyndon (Marisa Berenson) a high English society widow.
One thought on “Barry Lyndon (1975)-Beautiful World Created by Kubrick”
I’ve seen this film and shown it to friends. It’s interesting to see whether they think O’Neill is a social climber or a hero. I suppose to some he is an antihero.
