GBU Season 2, Episode 4: Barry Lyndon

A reminder that the Oscars were once handed out to movies of value.

This is our first recording using Logic in like a year and a half. Cool!

Jon and I finished our viewing of Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon, an adaptation of William Makepeace Thackery’s The Luck of Barry Lyndon. This was never one of Kubrick’s mainstream successes, and isn’t a very common title to be brought up when people recount his work, but it is a technically brilliant feat, and a well-acted, thoroughly interesting picture.

Famously, this film was filmed with special lenses in order to get everything in only natural light. Look. At. This. Shit.

We’re going to try and get together with Kayleigh next week, after Jon has seen Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse to discuss that and the abysmal 2019 Academy Awards.

We’d love it if you shared the show with your friends if you like what we do. You can follow us on Twitter @GBUpodcast, and you can get in touch with us there, or by e-mailing me at Don’t forget to rate and review the podcast on your podcatcher of choice if you can, like Apple Podcasts, but don’t forget you can find the show all over the place, including Spotify and Stitcher.
