Concerning the ultra-violent ways of Alex (Malcolm McDowell) and his three droogs cavorting about a futuristic Britain and aided in their wake of crime by glasses of drug-laced milk, one poorly executed crime locks Alex in prison where he agrees to participate in an experimental treatment developed by the government to rid society of criminal motives.
“You'll certainly never listen to the William Tell Overture in quite the same way again. And as for “Singin' in the Rain”...” —Simon Braund, Empire Magazine “A chilling classic, the movie is a scabrous satire about human deviance, brutality, and social conditioning that has remained a visible part of the ongoing public debate about violence and the movies.” —Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle “...It’s his most human film, right next to LOLITA in its refusal to judge its central character’s sickness. That’s the job of the audience. Anyone who doesn’t feel up to that job might throw up their hands and accuse Kubrick of being immoral, when in fact the sense of being a morality play is hard-wired right into the structure of CLOCKWORK ORANGE.” —Jeremiah Kipp, Slant
