    Default Barry Lyndon (Criterion)

    Bryan says this new Criterion Barry Lyndon Blu-ray is the definitive, must-own release!

    My issue with the film is that the main character goes from interesting in the first half to an unlikable prick in the second half. It was also way too long. It's not bad overall, but nowhere near the "5 Star" hype that it gets.

    Isn't that the point of the film? I haven't seen it so please no spoilers. It looks like Criterion made a nice release. I generally really like Kubrick films so I am looking forward to seeing this.

    I have liked nearly all of Kubrick's films that I have seen, except for this one. Let me know what you think after you finally watch it.

    I've been curious about this one for many years now. I will be picking up this Criterion version. I think it may of aired on Turner classics or amc and I forgot to dvr it. This version seems like the one to see though.
