Reviews

  • By Jacob Samuelson -

    As I have said in my review of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, this is a very hard film to like. I believe in the artistry of Stanley Kubrick, and I believe in the message of this film. The film I feel describes the lurid illusion of choice and the unfocused morality behind it. Would it be better to allow Alex his free will and spread pain and chaos where he goes, or do you eliminate his choice and turn him into a mindless slave of impulse? It’s through the tragedy and violence of the film that the message may be seen clearly. Stanley Kubrick in my eyes has only made one mistake and that was A.I., but aside from creepy Haley Joel Osment robots haunting my waking hours, Kubrick has done nothing but shock and amaze, and this film is a perfect example of his raw talent. The revolutionary and iconic film score permeates the richly layered atmosphere magnifying the sick joy of our lead character or the fragile insecurity of the world around him. Malcolm McDowell’s performance as Alex is perhaps one of the scariest things I have ever seen put to film, to be such a hardcore psychotic at such a young age disturbs me to no end. A Clockwork Orange is one of Stanley Kubrick’s best, violence and all.
