The December of 40 years ago Barry Lyndon (1975) hitted the theatres. After all this time, we still haven’t quite appreciated this hidden masterpiece. This video helps you reconsider this movie through an analysis of one of many cinematic strategies Stanley Kubrick makes use of – the largely debated zoom shot.
This video is actually a very little fragment of my bachelor dissertation, where I fully analyzed Barry Lyndon’s cinematography, direction, themes, and the way they interplay with each other along the picture.
I might eventually consider making other video essays about the movie, creating a series where I try to provide various insights about the visual strategies, and study form and structure.
