The critical consensus

This digitally restored version of Kubrick’s 1976 masterpiece still astounds, both in its formal accomplishments and in its searing emotional charge.

*****Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 27/07/2016

Stanley Kubrick’s hypnotic masterpiece looks just as good 40 years on, as it follows the fluctuating fortunes of Ryan O’Neal’s humble Irish hero.

*****Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 28/07/2016

Stanley Kubrick’s reputation may rest on bigscreen spectacles such as 2001: A Space Odyssey and Spartacus but the exquisite, Oscar-winning Barry Lyndon deserves to be just as well known.

*****Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 29/07/2016

Ryan O’Neal plays an 18th-century rogue-turned-aristocrat in Kubrick’s 1975 gem.
