The Twin Geeks 7: Barry Lyndon (1975)

This week on The Twin Geekscast we’re taking a look at a great masterpiece from one of cinema’s most legendary directors. Barry Lyndon is a more overlooked film from Stanley Kubrick’s filmography, though it is getting considerably more attention as of late. Allow us to continue this delayed praise by saying Barry Lyndon deserves equal recognition along side Kubrick’s other masterpieces such as 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), The Shining (1980), and Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964). Ryan O’Neal stars as the lucky Irish rouge, stumbling his way to the top of the social ladder in 18th century England. Barry Lyndon is a gorgeously epic film that’s surprisingly accessible despite its period setting and daunting runtime. Listen to what we think of Kubrick’s under-praised classic here:
