Barry Lyndon


“A film is — or should be — more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what’s behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later.”

Stanley Kubrick would have been 89 today.


Kubrick was able to shoot Barry Lyndon in candlelight and natural light by adapting old Mitchell BNC rear projection cameras to take big Zeiss f/0.7 lenses, originally manufactured for NASA for purpose of satellite photography. He shot wide open which gave him virtually no depth of field.
