Barry Lyndon Stanley Kubrick Film Festival

Barry Lyndon is Stanley Kubrick's epic costume drama based on William Makepeace Thackeray's picaresque novel. It tells the story of a young rogue who wanders through life getting lost in various adventures, meeting his share of women and oddball characters. When Redmond Barry (Ryan O'Neal) trying desperately to maintain an Irish brogue becomes jealous of Captain Quin's advances on Barry's beloved cousin, he challenges the man to a duel. Winning the duel, young Barry is forced to leave his home and his mother, and off on his adventures he goes. He meets thieves, lonely soldier brides, Prussian army leaders, and British widows, inventing new stories about himself at every turn of the road. This film is lush and magnificent, sparkling with colour, every frame reminiscent of the finest European art. The blues of the Prussian army uniforms and the reds of the British contrast sharply with the majestic green land and mountains in nearly every background. Kubrick often begins a shot close in, then zooms out to reveal the beautiful natural landscape and ornate rooms surrounding the now seemingly insignificant characters. With rousing performances from O'Neal, Marisa Berenson, Hardy Kruger, and Leonard Rossiter, jaw-dropping camerawork, spectacular natural lighting, and a marvelous classical-music soundtrack painstakingly put together by Kubrick, Barry Lyndon is a dramatic romantic epic that may be Kubrick's most beautiful film.

Inspired by the idea that one of the greatest gifts one generation can pass to another is the wisdom it has gained from experience, the Wisdom project, produced with cooperation from Archbishop Desmond Tutu, seeks to create a record of a multicultural group of people who have all made their mark on the world. Presented against the same white space, all of the subjects are removed from their context, which not only democratizes them, but also allows for a clear dialogue to exist between them. In an attempt to create a more profound, honest, and truly revealing portrait of these luminaries, the project encompasses their voices, their physical presence, and the written word. This comprehensive portrayal of such a profound and global group is an index of extraordinary perspectives. Wisdom is an ongoing project. Additions to the list of contributors continues.

Having been born in secret in London because his mother Bridget is unmarried, Austin “Occi” Byrne is brought back to Sligo, only for Bridget to be roundly rejected by her parents Michael and Theresa. After the Hickey brothers torment Occi by rolling him down a hill in an oil drum, causing him severe head injures, it is clear that Occi isn’t mentally “normal”. With the help of Father Queenan, Bridget and Occi manage to survive, ending up in a council house. But a tendency to lose his rag when provoked - culminating in a vicious attack on the woman at the social security office who has denied them money - lands Occi in a mental institution.

The festival is delighted to present this as a family screening for all to come and enjoy with the kids. I remember seeing this film as a child and being so excited because the whole cast were children, they seemed to be living every child’s dream with guns that shot cream and custard pies, cars powered by their feet. Written and directed by Alan Parker who came to Dingle in 2007 to launch our first film festival.

New York 1929, a war rages between two rival gangsters, Fat Sam and Dandy Dan. Dan is in possession of a new and deadly weapon, the dreaded ‘splurge gun’. As the custard pies fly, Bugsy Malone, an all-round nice guy, falls for Blousey Brown, a singer at Fat Sam’s speakeasy. His designs on her are disrupted by the seductive songstress Tallulah (Jodie Foster) who wants Bugsy for herself.
