La magistral pelicula de Kubrick volvio a dar vigencia a una de las novelas mas cínicas de la literatura inglesa del siglo XIX, Las memorias de Barry Lindon de Thackeray, obra que fue una critica a la cantidad de aventureros que habian ocupado posiciones importantes en la Inglaterra de sus tiempos y donde trato de mostrar como las riquezas hacian que la sociedad perdonara cualquier medio de lograrlas.

The racy memoirs of the Irish braggart and rogue who flourished, if that's the right word, in the late 1700s, are delightfully imagined by one of the great Victorian writers.

    " Roboante ma di una calma assoluta al tempo stesso.
    Una vita di salite e discese, raccontata in modo magistrale.

    " didn't bother finishing this one. Vanity Fair much better, this self indulgent dribble. "

    " A crazy story about a self-deluded loafer who wanders through Europe in the 1880s. He constantly fails at whatever he tries, but is under the impression that he's succeeded marvelously. A cynical book about human nature and how well people can deceive themselves. A fun read. "

    " Barry Lyndon is a prime example of the unreliable narrator. He's a charming rogue who, on long acquaintance, loses his charm, but not his villainy.

    " I don't think I've ever liked a protagonist less. By the end, I was hoping for his downfall. "

    " I honestly read this because I saw Kubrick's film adaptation on IFC one day and had to find what piece of literature inspired such a delicate piece of art on film. I wasn't disappointed. "

    " Shit, it's one thing to enjoy a Kubrick film despite its length, but the length of the source material is another thing entirely. Not that the page count is too high but it's pretty starchy, despite its quirks... still, i'm persevering. "

    " Despite the fact that I don't really like Thackeray all that much, I've wound up reading a lot of his books. This is the best one. "

    " How such a great book could be such an awful movie is beyond me. "

    " the sordid tale of a wasted life guided of a moral compass which knows only two directions (which often transmogrify into a single direction): greed and vanity--a brilliant novel of manners by the master of the novel of manners-- "

    " gambling, is the most gentle-manly of social engagements. "
