Quote from: The Gold TrumpetMy opinion of Barry Lyndon is that it is the second best Kubrick film ever made, very near to 2001.
Quote from: ebeaman69I don't think there have been any 90's period pieces yet, right?
Quote from: GhostboyBTW, found this interesting site that offers a lot of in-depth insight into all Kubrick's works...http://www.visual-memory.co.uk/amk/
Quote from: ebeaman69Yeah, I can't really get into many pre-1920's period pieces a lot of the time myself. I guess it starts to feel too much like school after awhile. Anything about the 20's through the 80's is fucking cool by me though, I love that stuff. I don't think there have been any 90's period pieces yet, right? Anyway, Barry Lyndon was no easier for me to get into than any other 1800's set film I've ever seen. Like I said, it just started to feel like a film I would watch in history class. Don't get me wrong, it was technically AMAZING. The cinematography and the direction was just perfection in every sense of the word...but the story and the characters and all that just didn't click with me I guess. They really bored me. I mean, 2001 is slow...but the urgency is so intriguing...so you want to keep watching. That's why I love that film. Barry Lyndon didn't have that urgency. There did come a point where I didn't give a fuck about it anymore.Oh well...I still love Kubrick.

Quote from: General Jack D. RipperI can no longer sit back and allow Communist infiltration, Communist indoctrination, Communist subversion and the international Communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.

Quote from: ebeaman69 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.
