Quickie: Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon (1975)

Barry Lyndon is one of the most captivating single-man journeys I’ve ever endorsed. The coinciding messages about the effect poverty or wealth can have upon an individual’s character, ambitions, and actions are marvelously exhibited. The film’s finale is as exhilarating as it is inventive and proves itself as one of Kubrick’s finest cinematic sequences. The narration the movie offers however, feels glaringly unnecessary, but despite that, every other aspect of Barry Lyndon is all you could ever hope for in a Kubrick gem. (Verdict: A)

Sidenote: Watching this movie in 4K on Criterion is goddly! Highly recommended!
