"But its not fair! It's not fair that I should feel ill when I hear lovely, lovely, lovely Ludwig Van!"
Savagery composed to the tune of Beethoven. A Clockwork Orange is a strange combustion of chaos. The demented Alex leads his droogies through the most shocking, and often brilliant, scenes in movie history. Kubrick brings together a captivating futuristic set with wonderful colors, which only look real when you viddy them on a screen. He controls the camera like a classical danse macabre. It's very, very interesting, twisted and dark. The author of the book which this film is based on is written by Anthony Burgess, who created a dystopian future full of odd language and prophetic insight into street culture. Kubrick has turned this scary world into a masterpiece that screams F-U. Granted, its not for everyone. But every few years I find myself turning it on and surviving it's ultra-violence while finding new moral conundrums. Though this movie will never hit as hard as it did when I was only a teenager. Controversially, I believe that's who Kubrick made this movie for.
