Fifth about The Seventh

Barry Lyndon

Barry LyndonBarry Lyndon: above everything else, a film of enormous beauty; from the choice of music to the rigorous, painting-like quality of the images. The story, an interesting portrait of the time, is told with cold detachment: the unemotional and precise narration, the shot selection (more often than not, from a distance, observing the action from a neutral point of view), the low-key acting (still effective). The ponderous pace imposed by Stanley Kubrick does not bother, as there is always something to appreciate in the frame.
