Barry Lyndon

Barry Lyndon is a movie by Stanley Kubrick based on the novel The Luck of Barry Lyndon by William Makepeace Thackeray. Kubrick used lenses developed by Zeiss for NASA which allowed him to shoot many of the scenes using natural light, including a scene of nightime card play shot in candlelight. Shooting this way produced a flatter image, allowing Kubrick to present his 18th Century settings in a way that nearly replicated paintings of the period.
