Lars von Trier on Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon (via Kottke and Gruber):
I saw the film when it came out. I was in my early twenties. The first time I saw it, I slept.
Nothing wrong with sleeping through a film. I slept through The Matrix at the Embassy once.
By the way, of all the films I haven’t seen Barry Lyndon is the one I want to see first.
