"This movie was nude and mod mess. It has no redeeming value, and we simply watch as a man lived the life he chooses among bits of pornographic art. He seems to have changed after behavior modification, but not really. Now I see why Malcolm McDowell always chose such strange projects in his career. Perhaps he was trying to chase the feel of this disaster movie, trying to repeat the "magic." Warning: ⚠️ Nude scenes featuring female assault."
"I think this is the only movie of Stanley’s I like really. It’s so weird and almost wacky like a child’s look on violence which isn’t to surprising constituting the age of Alex..he’s really just a child doing these horrible things. We are seeing all these things through his lens so I feel like there’s an aspect of imagination with all of this too! But also I liked how (just like in real life) this “reform” doesn’t end up working because they but a bandaid on a gaping wound with violence no less!"
"I really wish I enjoyed this movie more than I did. On a technical level, it’s undeniably impressive. Stanley Kubrick is a master behind the camera and the score was perfect for the dystopian world the film creates. His use of wide angle shots adds a unique perspective of the environment these characters inhabit. Unfortunately I was a bit confused about how I should feel… Thematically it was all over the place and the ending did not work for me at all😕 I guess I gotta read the book now"
""A Clockwork Orange" is an unquestionable masterpiece. Stanley Kubrick's direction, Malcolm McDowell's unforgettable portrayal of Alex, and the film's provocative exploration of free will and morality make it a timeless classic. Its striking visuals and disturbing themes create an unforgettable cinematic experience that challenges and lingers, ensuring it's a must-see for anyone who appreciates boundary-pushing cinema."
