What are critics saying?


The Atlantic by David Sims

It’s a movie that actually makes the past look otherworldly, unlike many period pieces, which strive to make history seem easy to slip into.


Empire by Ian Nathan

Kubrick's superb version of William Thackery's first novel is meticulous and philosophically stimulating but it can leave some audiences unmoved on an emotional level.


CineVue by John Bleasdale

Barry Lyndon is a rich cinematic experience which fully deserves to once more be seen on the big screen and enjoy its status as one of Stanley Kubrick’s greatest achievements.


Total Film by Kevin Harley

Between the vast exteriors and candlelit interiors, the expressive authority of Kubrick’s direction is breathtaking.


Entertainment Weekly by Owen Gleiberman

To watch Ryan O’Neal’s performance as the upwardly mobile Barry, part victim and part cad, is to see Kubrick’s perverse genius with actors. He cast a dullard only to jolt us, by the end, with the revelation of the bastard within.
