Another one of Kubrick's films that I liked, but at the same time I didn't. There certainly are many classic elements in this film that are well worth while, but I was still left with that same sense that I felt upon watching other Kubrick classics (2001 and The Shining)...why am I supposed to care? I understand what the film is about, but I don't get the point of the film. After I watched this film the only thing I could think was... "okay." The concept of this film is intriguing and it was certainly ahead of it's time and is still unlike anything I've seen. Malcolm McDowell is really good in this.

Stanley Kubrick always nails it on the sport I mean this movie makes singing in the rain look Bad in a good way. Malcolm McDowell is a creepy young sod that no body whats to mess with him.

A nice bit o' the old Ludwig Van

A lot like Fight Club, A Clockwork Orange holds a mirror to society to show us what's wrong. It's definitely not everyone's cup of tea, but it has so much in it that's worthy of a mention. And Kubrick knocks it out of the park again.
Alex is the foulest, most brutal, vicious sociopathic criminal delinquent there just about is, and it's a dystopian future London in which he acts out his wrath and rage. He chooses his victims carelessly, hyping himself up on 'milk-plus' and roaming the streets with his 'droogs'.
Malcolm McDowell delivers an Oscar-worthy performance in the first ten minutes, let's put it like that.
Kubrick's direction and wide-angle fetish is well-displayed here and the score is masterful and perfectly fitting.

I like to think of this film as the perfect cause-and-effe...

Kubrick at his best

There are a lot of famous movie directors who were (or are) more then likely insane. But for the greatest fusion of insanity and talent one must look no further then Stanley Kubrick.

A Clockwork Orange may not be his most popular work, but it definitely is his most controversial. It was even band on the other side of the pond for a number of years.

The movie is about a young man (played by Malcolm McDowell) and his gang of miscreants who go around drinking, beating and raping in one of the most entertainingly horrific montages you’ll ever see. Eventually he is captured and forced, against his will, to do no wrong. The tides are then turned, and he is brought down by the world around, and cannot fight back (sense violence is bad.)

The movie shows us an insane murderously evil ...

"A Clockwork Orange" by Yojimbo

A sociopathic young street thug is subjected to behaviour modification therapy after a series of brutal crimes to find himself at the tender mercies of those he wronged in his previous life. A Clockwork Orange is a bleak and affecting study of violence and it's consequences that struck too powerful a chord with a certain demographic; after the film spawned several copycat cases of real-life "ultra-violence", Kubrick himself censored it for 25 years. This gave the film a kind of underground chic and a certain mysticism that extends beyond the quality of the actual film itself which made it acquire a cult following of those who would proclaim it a masterpiece. It does have moments of power and certainly makes an impact, but I can't help feeling that it is based more on lurid exploitation th...

I loved the movie mostly for its originality.  I didn't sit there and think about all the hidden meanings behind everything and try to analyze it just cause I was told it was deep and complex, like most movies of this type. Instead of that, I just watched the damn thing and what I found was something that entertained me in a way I've never witnessed before and it struck a chord with me in some indescribable way.  Most films of this caliber, that I say I "love", just have a hold on me that others don't.

I recently came across a page of glowing reviews about this particular film and I nearly threw up. 4 stars here, and 4 stars there when this film is clearly flawed and you are subliminally being made to love it. Don't get me wrong, I loved Alex's character and Malcolm McDowell is as brilliant as they come in this flick, but there was too much unnecessary dialogue, it ran for far too long, and as Stanley Kubrik (who I absolutely adore) tries to convey that society is terrible and have created monsters out of Alex and his Droogs....it seems quite clear to me that Alex and his crew are what is terrible with society. The movie is not the worst I've ever seen and it has its moments. Not to mention the absolutely beautiful cinematography, but to even be considered one ot the best movies ever made really makes me laugh. Thoughts?
