Considered by critics to be Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece, Barry Lyndon has suffered from scholarly and popular neglect. Maria Pramaggiore argues that one key reason that this film remains unappreciated, even by Kubrick aficionados, is that its transnational and intermedial contexts have not been fully explored. Taking a novel approach, she looks at the film from a transnational perspective - as a foreign production shot in Ireland and an adaptation of a British novel by an American director about an Irish subject.

Making Time in Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon: Art History and Empire is not only a welcome addition to the already bountiful field of Kubrick studies; it is also the sole monograph specifically addressing Barry Lyndon.

Making Time in Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon . Art, History, and Empire Maria Pramaggiore. I consider Stanley Kubrick one of the major auteurs of the twentieth century because whenever I re-watch one of his films, my viewing experience changes. And time is for me one of the more compelling concepts. Thus I welcomed Maria Pramaggiore's book with enthusiasm because it proposes a discussion of how one of the greatest directors 'created' time, sharing his experience of it with us. Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon (1975) was adapted from William Makepeace Thackeray's novel The Memoirs of Barry Lyndon, Es. Of the Kingdom of Ireland (1856).

Maria Pramaggiore argues that one key reason that this film remains unappreciated, even by Kubrick aficionados, is that its transnational and intermedial contexts have not been fully explored.

Pramaggiore argues that, in Barry Lyndon, Kubrick develops his richest philosophical mediation on cinema's capacity to mediate the real and foregrounds film's relationship to other technologies of visuality, including painting, photography, and digital media. By combining extensive research into the film's source novel, production and reception with systematic textual analysis and an engagement with several key issues in contemporary academic debate, this work promises not only to make a huge impact in the field of Kubrick studies, but also in 1970s filmmaking, cultural history and transnational film practice.


Reviews about Making Time in Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon: Art, History, and Empire (3):
Xellerlu
I so wanted to like this. We need a popular, book-length analysis of this film. Yes, this is probably “too academic” for many readers, but there are other problems. It could have laid out and explored its ideas in a lengthy piece in “Film Quarterly” rather than hundreds of pages in a book. The author revisited the same set of thoughts too many times with not enough new ground being tilled. We all can appreciate the effort here, but purchase with caution.

The book presents many interesting aspects of the - in my opinion - by far greatest film of all times. The analysis of the film is good, but - of course - there are many untold aspects.
Sharper and deeper is the book "Raum und Zeit im filmischen Œuvre von Stanley Kubrick" (2009) (engl.: Space and time in the cinematic œuvre of Stanley Kubrick), in my opinion the best and most scientific Kubrick book worldwide, a real sensation (and a book, Pramaggiore does not mention at all!?)
Hopefully the book of Maria Pramaggiore can give the film a push, so that it can find a much brighter audience, but this probably rests a wishful dream...
Slowly writer
A study that opens up SK's work in new ways - real critical arguments that have been carefully thought through are rare...This is one.
