Review by anonymous (posted on 22-Aug-2006)

Stanley Kubrick created a visual masterpiece in Barry Lyndon. Kubrick mixes drama, war, and romance in this eye-candy movie. The camera work is impeccable and I feel this whole picture is a work of art. The storyline, which is methodically paced, is about a boy named Barry and his transformation from boy to man and good to near evil. The story is appealing, but I mostly enjoyed the way it was physically presented by Kubrick. Barry Lyndon is a great movie for a Sunday afternoon for anybody, and it is a must see for Stanley Kubrick fans.
