Misunderstood in Great Britain and the States at the time of its release, BARRY LYNDON (1975) has always been appreciated by Europeans as a work of great beauty, director Stanley Kubrick’s journey into a Visconti-like wonderland.
In the film, Lord Bullingdon is played by Leon Vitali, who quit acting to become Kubrick’s right-hand man. Vitali is the subject of Tony Zierra’s new documentary FILMWORKER.
