The Austin Chronicle

Barry Lyndon

Rated PG, 183 min. Directed by Stanley Kubrick. Starring Ryan O’Neal, Marisa Berenson, Patrick Magee.

REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Wed., Aug. 2, 2000

Ryan O’Neal has never been better cast than as the shallow and opportunistic hero of Thackeray’s early 19th-century novel. Kubrick’s detailed precision brings this morality play to life and his three-hour, visually packed tableaux won four Oscars (including cinematography, art direction, and costume design).
