Lady Lyndon on screen in a shimmery blue gown – scenes were shot in natural light and candlelight with special lenses to capture the look of 18th Century paintings.

    Oh, just beautiful! There’s a great contrast in Barry Lyndon between the frequent luminescence of the look and the blackly comic awfulness of the things it depicts. This is great, Vickie. Thanks again.

      Dear G. K. — an inky black comedy, for a long time it was my favorite film, probably something to do with the pace and the painterly quality…

    Dear Ms L
    From someone who knows a little of this age and the author of the original.
    Mr K’s film was the loveliest of renditions and to my mind the painterly quality so appropriate. The people of these times understood their image only reflected and in paint after all.
    No peering camera lenses for them.
    I shall watch BL anew.
    Yours ever
