A Clockwork Orange
DIRECTOR: STANLEY KUBRICK
CAST: MALCOLM MCDOWELL, PATRICK MAGEE, WARREN CLARKE, ADRIENNE CORRI, MICHAEL BATES
Wendy Carlos’s score of switched-on Moog synthesizer classical, Kubrick’s iconographic framings, and Malcolm McDowell’s cruelly charismatic, Nadsat slang-spouting central performance combine to make for cracking cinema, and a hallucinatory imagination of a future broken Britain. Based on the savage satire by Anthony Burgess and a work by turns exhilarating and nauseating, it is yet another of Kubrick’s iconic, culture-defining films.
A Clockwork Orange is screening as part of the Kubrick x 8 series.
