A Clockwork Orange

“No time for the old in-n-out, love, I’ve just come to read the meter.”

Based on Anthony Burgess’s disturbing novel about England in the totalitarian future, director Stanley Kubrick‘s A CLOCKWORK ORANGE stars Malcolm McDowell as Alex, a Beethoven-loving, head-bashing punk who leads his gang of droogs on ultra-violent assaults–until he is captured by authorities and subjected to nasty behavior-modification therapy.

Stanley Kubrick‘s contributions are his wit and his eye. The wit, too much at times, is as biting as in Dr. Strangelove, and the production, while of another order, is as spectacular as in 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY.” (Gene Siskel)

“What our nightmares have accustomed us to see in dreams, Stanley Kubrick‘s A CLOCKWORK ORANGE shows us in broad daylight. It is one of the most unsettling films in the whole of cinema.” (London Evening Standard)
