A Clockwork Orange

A Clockwork Orange

Directed by Stanley Kubrick • 1971 • United Kingdom
Starring Malcolm McDowell, Patrick Magee, Michael Bates

Stomping, whomping, stealing, singing, tap-dancing, violating . . . Derby-topped hooligan Alex (Malcolm McDowell) has a good time—at the tragic expense of others. His journey from amoral punk to brainwashed proper citizen and back again forms the dynamic arc of Stanley Kubrick’s future-shock vision of Anthony Burgess’s novel. Controversial when first released, A CLOCKWORK ORANGE won the New York Film Critics Circle’s best picture and director awards and earned four Oscar nominations. It still has the power to entice, shock, and hold us in its grasp.
