1. Barry Lyndon (1975)
Stanley Kubrick's underrated epic, starring Ryan O'Neal as a feckless 18th century Irishman, is also his most human and profound. Roger Alcott's Oscar-winning cinematography looks better than most paintings, and Kubrick's screenplay feels even richer and deeper than the original Thackeray novel. In terms of beauty, craft and vision, this movie has no equal.
