Barry Lyndon (1975)

This 1975 Stanley Kubrick adaptation of the William Makepeace Thackeray novel won four Oscars, including Best Cinematography and Costume Design. Ryan O'Neal stars as a young Irish rogue/social climber who finds disappointment when his ambitions are finally realized. The film runs more than three hours, but Kubrick's pacing, lush cinematography, and artful costumes keep viewers engaged. A stunning, complex epic that has become one of Kubrick's most artistic, sumptuous efforts.
