Greetings, M’Lady

Simply because this needed to be done, we have created what might possibly be the world’s nerdiest meme. If you haven’t seen Barry Lyndon, first of all: do that. If you have, you may know the majestic suaveness of Captain John Quin. Sure, he may pay for his brides, but his lean and leer game is so on point that he inspired us to create the “Greetings, M’lady” series. Heavy-hitting stuff, we know.

Episode 15: Barry Lyndon (1975)

The guys demand satisfaction on this week’s episode for Barry Lyndon, Stanley Kubrick’s 1975 visual and satirical masterpiece of 18th Century high class society. The humor of the film is the center of their discussion, as it unanimously caught them off guard. Ryan O’Neal delivers a brutally believable performance of the status-obsessed titular character, but the film’s satellite characters are what give Barry Lyndon so much energy and believability in its humor; from Lord Bullingdon (young and old) to Reverend Runt, the cast is masterfully crafted and made up to emulate the ludicrous nature of the satire’s subject, to the point where the painting-like images on the screen feel all too real in their depictions. They also plan their own survivals in a Napoleonic, duel-fevered society.
