Luck may be perceived as an invincible force that dictates the course of life, from the most trivial to the most life-changing events. In the case of Barry Lyndon (1975), it is the means by which Stanley Kubrick constructs his fiction, exposing the frailty and triviality of human nature. In this visual essay, the cinematic piece is broken down to events where the protagonist duels with destiny—decoded by a series of eighteenth century paintings—and a poster made for a cinema cycle, both paying homage to its immaculate photography inspired by the aforementioned art period.
