Probably a few months ago I watched it recently. Its just a beautiful film I can watch it and get lost in the visuals every time.

Yeah, it's very visually enjoyable to watch. I don't think that's all there is to it, since it does present an anti-heroic character who's own decision lead to his personal downfall and degeneration. Even so, I wouldn't be able to compare it with any Leone film. Comparing Leone with any director is fruitless, and saying that Kubrick was trying to make a SW with Barry Lyndon is intriguing, but not very accurate. BL is quite simply a period pieece with an anti-heroic character, as depicted in the novel.

If you haven't try and watch Tom Jones as a companion piece, its a different style but very effective also.

That's what you get, Drink, for being such an annoying Melville fanboy.

Wow - this looks great. A beautifully shot film.

The interview with Tony Lawson might be interesting too - I remember reading an interview once where he described his role as being little more than "a pair of hands" for Kubrick.
