The Conversations: Barry Lyndon
Just in time for some weekend reading, the latest edition of The Conversations has posted at The House Next Door. This time around, Ed Howard and I discuss Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon – a film that has been celebrated, ignored and just plain overlooked. Although an adaptation of William Makepeace Thackeray's novel, Barry Lyndon is a distinctly Kubrickian work, unfolding at a deliberate pace with warm, naturally lit images that contrasts with the director’s familiar cold remove. This was my first time watching Barry Lyndon, which had always managed to elude me, and Ed was returning to the film for the first time in several years. Head on over to The House Next Door and read The Conversations and join the discussion.
