The Mad magazine version was way better

Quite possibly the longest three hours of my life. Every few years I give this movie another go and after it's over I ask myself why did I bother. It is a beautiful movie to look at. There's no denying that. But it's a movie filled with uninteresting characters. I very quickly lose an interest in Barry Lyndon and what he's up to. The main problem is Ryan O'Neal. He's not a good enough actor to pull this movie off. I do enjoy many of his movies but this one is out of his league. Two hours into it today my daughter walked in the room and asked "Why are you watching this? It looks like a painting?" Well said.

Epic Story-Telling

I like long movies with a good story because they pull you in and don't let go until it says THE END. This is time well spent in the world of entertainment. This movie has that quality and the story is unusual with twists of interest along the way. Good acting and directing make this a comfortable watch and viewer is not disappointed going from scene to scene to conclusion. Get used to men wearing power, rouge, false dimples and lace and women being objects of use and status making this viewer say what a strange world to visit with. Yet this world existed and this is one of the many stories to come across. Good movie to eat with while watching with a snack and tasty drink too...Get ready for...

A Visually Stunning Masterpiece

Finally, after 42 years of neglect I got to watch Stanley Kubrik´s period masterpiece BARRY LYNDON. It´s a film best watched with a cup of red wine by your side. Although it moves at slow pace action wise, it is never boring. The costumes, the fine details of the era (the 18th century) are stunning to watch even in this age of high tech movie warfare. Still, as visually gorgeaus as this movie is, it is never really engaging. A lot of it, I think, comes from Ryan O'Neil's stiffer-than-a-corpse portrayal of Barry Lyndon. I don't know if his emotionless portrayal was done on purpose or if it's inherent of Mr. O'Neil's acting skills (think Keanu Reeves but much stiffer). BARRY LYNDON would've been much suited for a short mini-series. In that format, BARRY LYNDON's story would've been much more engaging.

Humor is very present in a very subtle way, in the narration and in the story itself, yet in never borders on comedy at all. Despite being a 3 hour long movie, BARRY LYNDON goes by pretty quickly without ever being boring.

Unlike other Kubrick films, there's little hidden meaning behind BARRY LYNDON with a very straight forward story and an ending that feels rather inclomplete.

Still, BARRY LYNDON is a marvel to watch and an overall satisfying Kubrick film, but certainly not his pinnacle.
