Watch a brand new trailer for Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon

For too long, Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon has existed as the immaculately dressed runt of the director’s exceptional litter. Not as trippy as 2001, not as sexy as A Clockwork Orange, not as funny as Dr Strangelove, not as quotable as Full Metal Jacket, not as horrendously moving as Paths of Glory, not as fervently strange as Eyes Wide Shut.

And yet, as the years roll on, it’s a film whose reputation has just snowballed, to the point where many a hardened Kubrickite would single it out as his crowning cinematic achievement. Its stature will likely be consolidated further when the film receives a UK re-release in cinemas on 29 July, and to get you in the mood, here’s a new trailer for the film.
