It has a slow pace, but the main character and the cinematography are so good that it keeps you invested.
Possibly the most gorgeous picture ever constructed; Kubrick proves to be an inimitable cinematographer yet again.
A brilliant, brilliant film. Funny, touching, beautiful, it has it all. Kubrick's most emotional film and very possibly his best work.
My all time favourite, slow burn, slow paced, intense climax, gorgeous cinematography.
Beautiful like an old painting. The fall of the good man into corruption. A must watch.
In my limited view, the best movie ever made; it has everything, and does it all with cinical, voyeristic, adventurous perfection.
I watched it more than one time, funny, love and war!
Painfully long and slow, but despite the length, the dedication to the craft of filmmaking shines through in every aspect
A film that is so perfectly rendered in script, art direction, historical authenticity, you should like it. Not for those without patience.
A beautiful film with some of the best dynamics I’ve seen.
