A Clockwork Orange DVD
The old ultra-violence is back, as ultra-brilliant as anything Stanley Kubrick ever directed. Demonic gang-leader Alex -Malcolm McDowell's defining performance - goes on the spree of rape, mugging and murder with his pack of "droogs". But he's a boy who also likes Beethoven's Ninth and a bit of "the old in-out, in-out". Then he finds himself at the mercy of the state and its brainwashing experiment designed to take violence off the streets and put it at the service of the government. With unforgettable imagery, startling music and innovative language, Kubrick's bizarrely mesmerising film fashions a fast moving SF thriller about free-will versus state control. Hugely controversial when first released - it had the British Home Secretary demanding a private view - A Clockwork Orange earned four Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture. Its power to excite and perturb is undiminished; it’s warning about the state's encroaching hold over the individual, more relevant today than ever.
