    Default Barry Lyndon

    A movie directed by Stanley Kubrick, director well known for using classical music in his works. Soundtrack for Barry Lyndon is very interesting combination. And orchestral version of Heandel's Sarabande hooked me at the first time I heard it. As far as I know this was the first time when this great piece of music was performed by orchestra.

    The film itself is great too. Probably my favourite movie ever.

    I'd say it's the most underrated Kubrick film, one of his best in fact. The candlelit scenes are incredible and I found the makeup -- especially of the older men complete with beauty marks -- to be very surreal. The music is extraordinary. It does for Handel's Sarabande what A Clockwork Orange does for Purcell's Funeral March for Queen Mary (without the synths for the semi-purists among us).
