:? From the people in the world that loathe ALL of his movies with a passion or from me not liking ONE of his movies? I'm confused.


i think he accidentally bought one of those spinning graves


Lol....oh, alright. Good, that's fine then. I didn't think I had the power to make somebody spin in their grave by not liking one of their movies. How could I? I'm 16.

Alright, I am truly sorry cbrad and Pubrick...I fucked up, my bad. I misunderstood your posts. It seems that I can't fucking help but do that anymore. Sorry sorry sorry again.

Lol, I didn't take the ritalin...I should look into that, thank you. And I would never make fun of you by the way. I don't do that, even outside of the internet I never do that.

What did you mean by the "Leno" thing by the way Pubrick? Just wondering so I can make sure I'm not doing it anymore. Thank you.

BTW, found this interesting site that offers a lot of in-depth insight into all Kubrick's works...

I was also wondering if other directors have sites like this?

Barry Lyndon is great from a visual standpoint.  It's lush and it puts me to sleep, not saying that's a bad thing!  Kubrick is all about pace, the changing emotions on the face over time tell the story.  It's more real that way, longer, more sleep inducing, more beautiful.  I don't think it's his greatest work from, well, an entertaining standpoint obviously.  It's more like being at an art museum for 24 hours.  Great and exhausting.  2 viewings however is enough for me.   :-D
I'm somebody now, Harry. Everybody likes me. Soon, millions of people will see me and they'll all like me. I'll tell them about you, and your father, how good he was to us. Remember? It's a reason to get up in the morning. It's a reason to lose weight, to fit in the red dress. It's a reason to smile. It makes tomorrow all right. What have I got Harry, hm? Why should I even make the bed, or wash the dishes? I do them, but why should I? I'm alone. Your father's gone, you're gone. I got no one to care for. What have I got, Harry? I'm lonely. I'm old.

i just got around to watching this movie and didnt particularly care for it.  i think i am a bit prejudice to most movies of that era of white wigs and black moles and such.  i didnt get down with amadeus either although im sure they were both fine films, they put me to sleep.

Apparently, Scorsese is really into Barry Lyndon.

There is a very stylized and emotionally remote quality to the film that is off-putting to most people.  One of the keys to the film is Kubrick starts a lot of shots in close up, then pulls back for a long shot, so the effect is like a landscape painting come to life.  The lighting, the costumes, the mise en scene is of the highest quality.  The cinematography alone makes this a landmark film, as it influenced pretty much everything that came afterwards (Days of Heaven, most significantly, which with its golden hour cinematography has been endlessly influential).
Music is your best entertainment value.

i just read a Billy Wilder interview that i thought was really interesting where he talked about Barry Lyndon.  what he basically said was that that close up pull back thing, was effective the first few times and then quickly lost impact, (which i would agree with).  he also said that some of the shots in the movie were as beautiful as anything he'd ever seen, but anytime you have time to stop and say "wow, look how neat that shot is", you're not too invested in the actual story.

I've always disagreed with that statement about being aware of the beauty of the shot. I think it works perfectly well for this story. For a master of composition like Kubrick, each shot carries so much significance (visual and narrative), I think Wilder's dead wrong...

And the more you saw the zoom out, as Barry's story progressed, I felt it gained more and more impact.

Oh well... a wonderful film, just saw for the first time last night.
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

So who is looking forward to Ryan O'Neal's upcoming film, 'Malibu's Most Wanted?' It's a gangsta action comedy also starring Jamie Kennedy and Snoop Dog as the voice of a talking rat.


it was his love of barry lyndon, that lead snoop to taking the part
