A Clockwork Orange (re: 2019)

Director: Stanley Kubrick
Starring: Malcolm McDowell, Michael Bates, Patrick Magee
Duration: 136 min

In a dystopian future London, a gang of teenagers go on the rampage every night, beating and raping helpless victims. After one of the boys quells an uprising in the gang, they knock him out and leave him for the police to find. He agrees to try ‘aversion therapy’ to shorten his jail sentence. When he is eventually let out, he hates violence, but the rest of the gang members are still after him.

Unforgettable images, startling musical counterpoints, the fascinating language used by the young gang – Kubrick shapes them into a shattering whole in his stylish, controversial take on Anthony Burgess’s novel about violence and free will.
