Trying to catch up on all things Kubrick in 2012. This 1975 stately, slow (but never boring) historical film is beautiful to watch. I became fascinated with just how PROPER the world was then. Even dueling to the death was quite highbrow! The guys wear more makeup, wigs and tights than a glam rock fest, so glad we live in the 21st century! GREAT photography, set design, costumes and narration. Ryan O' Neal's Scottish accent comes and goes rather distractingly, but he is better than expected. Talk about the lives of the 1%....THIS depicts the one percent of the late 1700's! Barry gets a B.
