Barry Lyndon 1975
Barry Lyndon is one of Stanley Kubrick's best films, as well of one of his most misunderstood. The story of one man's journey from rural Ireland to the height of English nobility, Lyndon is an epic in every sense of the word, filled with duels, wars, deceit, treachery, and some of the most beautiful cinematography in film history. While 2001: A Space Odyssey and A Clockwork Orange garner more attention, Barry Lyndon is just as accomplished as either, and deserves a closer look.

Barry Lyndon tells the tale of Redmond Barry (Ryan O'Neal), an Irish boy who falls in love with his cousin, Nora Brady (Gay Hamilton), but she plans on marrying Captain Quin (Leonard Rossiter). Barry challenges Quin to a duel and wins. Since Quin was a British officer, Barry's cousins convince him that the British will come looking for him, so he runs off. From there Barry faces challenges, experiencing vast highs and deep lows throughout his life.
