The film is about a young man takes on a liberal approach to nobility when he gambles, duels, and fights his way to becoming a nobleman while winning the heart of a woman. Takes place during 18th Century Europe. This movie had a good cast and brilliant directing by Mr. Kubrick himself. The acting is fantastic and the sets and the look of the movie is really good.

This romantic period piece has scope and beauty in every frame. It's exquisite to look at! However, a very slow pace, super long runtime, and a story with no dramatic interest, makes for a boring watch.

Not many people rank this film among Kubrick's greatest, but it is masterfully directed and an intriguing portrait of a protagonist who is sometimes an anti-hero. Beautiful cinematography, among some of Kubrick's most interestingly-framed shots.

One of the loveliest looking movies ever made.

Stanley Kubrick's award winning period drama is one of the most beautifully created films I've seen. The cinematography, the lighting, the costume design, the sets, and the picture itself is amazing.
Ryan O'Neal plays the title character, an ambitious social climber who wishes to escape his poor Irish roots and enter the upper echelons of European nobility in the mid 1700s. He fights in various wars and duels while gambling and romancing his way to fortune.
Like the direction, the acting is stately and refined. The helpful narration is often sarcastic and darkly comical. While the acting is more reserved and not quite as emotional as similar but more melodramatic films, the characters do not lose their human qualities. Barry Lyndon himself is a very flawed, naive, and sometimes even r...

A charismatic, sophisticated period piece.

There's not an awful lot to say about this movie. That may seem like a bad sign, but it's not as bad as it sounds.
Kubrick always leaves a pending mark in your mind. This movie didn't astound me, nor do I remember most of it, but that's okay, because I at least had an interesting time watching it. I normally hate period pieces, but all I can say about this one is that it is genuinely interesting. There's no layer before the battle with Kubrick, he balances the story well.
The music in this movie is spectacular. I loved the use of classical pieces to emphasize moods, expressions and exaggerations. It never felt forced like in Eyes Wide Shut.
By the end of the film, the lead falls victim to a mass of incidents that result in an excellent character change. I simply loved the way his chara...

Barry Lyndon review

One has to appreciate the beauty of the locations, cinematography, historical methods of its era (1700's manner of punishment, weapons used in war, duels, manner of speaking, etc.), period films and Redmond Barry's (Ryan O'Neal) journey/story before investing 3 hours on this. Not as entertaining as The Shining, 2001 or Full Metal Jacket, but definitely influential. It starts with the first Act wherein Redmond falls in love with his cousin Roma. He then performs a duel with English Captain John Quin (Leonard Rossiter), was robbed, employed by Captain Potzdorf's uncle in the Prussian Ministry of Police and marries Countess of Lyndon (Marisa Berenson). The second act is about the misfortunes and disasters of Barry Lyndon. It would affect his family fortune, duel with Lord Bullingdon (Leo...
