Part of the Stanley Kubrick Season
Stanley Kubrick's iconic A Clockwork Orange is an intelligent, visually stunning, disturbing and yet queasily entertaining adaptation of a great work of literature. Adapted from Anthony Burgess's best-selling novel written in the invented street slang Nadsat, the film tells the story of Alex (Malcolm McDowell) and his 'droog' (read: thug) friends, addicted to mindless acts of violence, killing the homeless and raping women. Equally violent is the state's aversion therapy Alex is forced to endure to cure him of his addiction...
Bold, hypnotic and still hugely impactful almost 50 years on.
