Product Overview

Stomping, whomping, stealing, singing, tap-dancing, violating. Derby-topped teddy-boy hooligan Alex (Malcolm McDowell) has his own way of having a good time. He has it at the tragic expense of others. Alex's journey from amoral punk to brainwashed proper citizen forms the dynamic arc of Stanley Kubrick's future-shock vision of Anthony Burgess' novel. Unforgettable images, startling musical counterpoints, the fascinating language used by Alex and his pals -- Kubrick shapes them into a shattering whole. Hugely controversial when first released, A Clockwork Orange won the New York Film Critics Best Picture and Director honors and earned four Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture. The power of its art is such that it still entices, shocks and holds us in its grasp.

Review It is difficult to rank A Clockwork Orange in Kubrick's body of work. Its look and approach are unique, but not as visionary as 2001. It's tone is bitingly satirical, but it's not as corrosive as Dr. Strangelove. Few, however - even the movie's critics - would debate that it leaves a forceful impression, and, when you study the reason for that, you uncover the evidence of genius. A Clockwork Orange has a universal message. Admittedly, it's one that many would prefer not to hear, but to deny the importance of its central themes or to dismiss the movie as a descent into debauchery is to ignore both an artistic achievement and a cautionary tale. A Clockwork Orange is not a pretty or comfortable experience. It does not pander to the crowd-pleasing mentality that shapes the structure of many films...But it demands thought, compels the attention, and refuses to be dismissed. And, for that reason, A Clockwork Orange must be considered a landmark of modern cinema.

Review "Singin' in the Rain" would never sound quite the same after A Clockwork Orange. In a twist of kismet, director Stanley Kubrick asked his star, Malcolm McDowell, if he knew any songs. The actor happened to know all the words to the titular song of the great MGM musical. Kubrick liked it so much that not only did McDowell warble it in a pivotal scene, but it would be the song to prove his character's undoing later in the film...After 30 years, the savage social satire that is A Clockwork Orange still retains its ability to shock, due in no small part to McDowell's exuberant performance as the cheerful droog Alex and to scenes like the "Singin' in the Rain" rape. The story of a young sociopath's adventures at work (raping -- "the old in-out" -- and pillaging being his particular forte), at play (the hilariously pixilated three-way encounter scored to "William Tell's Overture"), at the hands of the government...and at the mercy of a former victim feels as up-to-date now as it did in 1971.

Kim Newman, Empire A much-maligned and misunderstood classic, this is one of Kubrick's finest movies.
Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide ...a scathing satire...with an excellent performance by McDowell...
Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle A chilling classic...a scabrous satire about human deviance, brutality, and social conditioning...
The New York Times Brilliant. A tour de force of extraordinary images, music, words and feelings.
TV Guide ...tremendously powerful...No serious moviegoer can afford to ignore it.
