Aroview: Taking William Thackery's ironical novel as a starting point, dir. Kubrick's immaculate period piece sprawls across 18th century Europe and remains unmatched for evocative visuals and impeccable design, though some may find its languorous pace a long haul over three hours. Ryan O'Neal plays the unscrupulous title character who leaves Ireland in search of pleasure and fortune. Also stars Patrick Magee, Marisa Berenson.

4 stars (Very Good) Possibly the most visually astounding film I have ever seen, the lavish attention to detail is the greatest asset of this film. It also boasts dramatic and entertaining moments however certain scenes are much more enjoyable than the film as a whole.~dr.strangelove
