BARRY LYNDON 35mm d. Stanley Kubrick, 1975 at The Prince Charles (19 APR 20:00):

“With ornate imagery reminiscent of paintings from the story’s 18th century period, Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of William Makepeace Thackeray’s novel depicts the rise and fall of a sensitive rogue in the British aristocracy. Coming after the esteemed hits 2001 (1968) and A CLOCKWORK ORANGE (1971), BARRY LYNDON opened with high expectations and met with decidedly mixed responses to its restrained tone. Even with Oscar nominations for Best Picture and Best Director (and wins for Cinematography, Art Direction, Costumes, and Adapted Score), BARRY LYNDON was a box office failure, as mid-’70s audiences increasingly turned away from such narrative challenges as its epic length and muffled emotions. Since then, BARRY LYNDON has gained in stature, taking its place among the formidable artistic achievements of Kubrick’s career.” (The PCC)
