Clockwork Orange




In my continuing 2012 quest to watch all things Kubrick, CLOCKWORK ORANGE filled my brain last night. Banned in Europe after its initial release in 1971, Kubrick's vision of an ultra violent near-future is still powerful. Malcolm McDowell is insane and insanely great as ALEX, surely one of the least sympathetic leading characters in modern films. Yet Kubrick finds a way to tempt the viewer to feel sympathy, fear, arousal and empathy while watching Alex's descent/rise and comeuppance with his gang of "droogs". Weird, overtly sexual, filled with stylized violence and over the top performances, Clockwork still packs a punch and earns a B. Beethoven has never been used to accompany anything stranger........
