Barry Lyndon Trailer

"You're a liar, you're an imposter, you're a deserter." BFI has unveiled a new trailer for the re-release of Stanley Kubrick's underrated period piece Barry Lyndon, following the story of Redmond Barry in 18th century England. The film is getting a re-release in the UK for its 41st anniversary this year, so anyone who wants to see all 184 minutes of this on the big screen can catch it in the theaters (at least in England). The cast includes Ryan O'Neal as Barry, as well as Marisa Berenson, Patrick Magee, Hardy Krüger, Steven Berkoff, Gay Hamilton, Frank Middlemass and others. This is one of Kubrick's films that is not always mentioned, but there are many fans of it, and many others who probably haven't even seen it yet.

Here's the new re-release trailer for Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon, direct from BFI's YouTube:

Here's another follow-up trailer for the 40th anniversary (2015) of the film, also found on YouTube:

From Geoff Andrew: "With its meticulous historical accuracy and its astonishing visual beauty, Kubrick’s most underrated work is also probably his greatest. Deriving its story and characters (but not its tonal delicacy) from Thackeray’s comic novel about an 18th-century rake, the film deploys a stately pace to chart the rise and fall of Redmond Barry (O'Neal) as he flees Ireland, travels Europe and eventually seduces his way into the English aristocracy." Barry Lyndon is one of the many feature films directed by the legendary Stanley Kubrick, adapted from William Makepeace Thackeray's novel, first released in 1975. BFI will be re-releasing the film in UK theaters starting July 29th. For more info, visit One of your favorites?

    Yea, one of the great movies of all time! It's been number one on my best five movies of all time for many, many years. Just a very funny, very caustic and intelligent look at the insanity of the human condition. I thank the gods that digital wasn't around then, though I doubt Kubrick would have ever not shot on film. If he did shoot digital it would have looked better than anything being done on is so far, that's for sure. Kubrick was a real genius and this film is pure genius. The narration is so spot on and funny and ironic. Love it. Have seen this film many, many times. Great, great stuff.
