Barry Lyndon 
Not as fun as shining, but it is drama
4/4 stars

I remeber when i saw this film for first time i enjoyed its beautiful pictures, more comic than dramatic atmosphere of first part and greatly shot battles. Ending did not really touched me. Next time when i saw it it had whole new dimension. It was great. Drama went to new level. I was thinking if Griffith and Welles have taken cinema to new level than Kubrick took cinema on 10 new levels, because this good drama wasnt made after it.
What is so great about drama in this film? Drama in this movie is so great because it is not Shakespeare, characters are much less dramatic, they are real people not some dramatized heroes who seem to be greater than life, they are rotting flesh and bones who look for their happines in the times that were harder to live in than ours, especially for poor. War was normal thing but gentleman's manners were something that must be respected. To survive in this seemingly gentlemen's world main character must cheat. And that is what he does he cheats all his life, well not all by the end of his life he is looking for some warmness and his weekness destroys him. This character is not bad or good, he is just man who does what he has to do to survive in not so moral world. And he is tragic character, and after all is done you have to make conclusion, political, moral and other.
As rest of 60s,70sand80s kubrick films this one also includes dark humor and look is more beautiful than in any other Kubrick film.
