Barry Lyndon 
Barry Lyndon review
3.5/4 stars

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 (Leon Vitali), debts and a grievously unfortunate accident that occurred.

Definitely one of the most picturesque filmed movies created. Costumes, score and settings were noteworthy, which all deserved the accolades received in the Academy Awards. Ryan O'Neal and Kubrick should have been rewarded since they deservedly need to be praised in this effort on this movie. Screenplay was engaging with affable lines: The humor was subtle and well directed with pauses and verbal gestures. Barry Lyndon is about lies (1st act), manipulation (2nd act), death (2nd act), karma, compassion (H. Lyndon), bravery (war in the first act), and social classes.
