Three by Kubrick concludes with a portrait of an 18th-century Irish rogue—played by Ryan O'Neal—in Barry Lyndon. "Stanley Kubrick's magisterial Thackeray adaptation," wrote critic John Ridley, "now stands as one of his greatest and most savagely ironic films, not to mention one of the few period pieces on celluloid so transporting that it seems to predate the invention of cameras." Barry Lyndon received seven Academy Award nominations, with wins for music, cinematography, art direction, and costume design. Introduction by film critic Bilge Ebiri '95. New 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.
