I heard of the notorious film, but decided to read Burgess's novel first, and although I observed that it could have probably been better adapted to the book, for example the complete omission of the symbolic twenty-first chapter. It was an amazing film, well shot, and Mcdowell acted very well, also raw and gritty, like the book, the film will be an iconic piece of work, as will the novel, a must read and a must see, in that order

This is what makes this movie so interesting. For the fact it is different than any common movie you see out there. The strangeness, the poetry, the characters, but most of all...the story. In order to really understand it, watch it a few times. Stanley Kubrick made this to entertain movie buffs, and it did more than that.

This film is like, real horrorshow. It'll give ya a nice feeling all through your guttiwutts, like ya just peeted a chasha of the ol' knifey moloko. But may I suggest, my little droogies, that you itty on down to the biblio, and viddy the novel as well. You won't soon forget it. I do think it's the best piece of sinny ever, what with all the tolchoking ultra-violence, and the old in-out. Real horrorshow, my little droogies!

I believe that A Clockwork Orange has a lot of things in common with our present day world. Such violent acts exist whether you want to believe it or not. Kubrick does not exceed the depiction of these happenings, he mearly shows just enough to keem major plot points enbedded in your head. To not watch the Kubrick's movies simply because you don't want to have to decipher it because of it's shock value is completely up to you, but all and all this is a well put together movie. Sides, it's not like the bible didn't have graphic scenes throughout.

A Clockwork Orange is Definitely a Cult Classic. It has been one of my favorite movies of all time and having it on Blu-Ray makes it even more intense. Malcolm McDonald has certainly outdid himself with this movie, but for some, this movie may become a little too intense. The audio and visual becomes more alive on Blu-Ray then on regular DVD. I love how Blu-Ray brings the movie alive through both visual and audio and the extra material on the disc is a definite bonus. I am in the Baby-Boomer Generation and this movie is a Must Have movie.

The extremely violent gang lead by an ultra aggressive "alpha dog" who, in contrast, is the good boy at home with Mom and Dad and is a Beethoven fan, self destructs. I was fascinated by the inventive slang and "uniforms," but perhaps the biggest thing for me is that it is narrated. Maybe I don't like to think too much, or I like to be literally told a story. Narrated movies have an advantage with me. My favorite movie is "Little Big Man." Despite the evil main character with no redeeming qualities except perhaps his love of Beethoven's music, I really like this movie. It is like a strange, debased, but poetic dream.

I love this movie so much I bought the poster and put it in my living room. This is the best andie mcdowell movie and his last one before her change. This and the Duplex are my favortie Stanley Kubric movies. Its unfortunate that he was assinated after his wife had a miscarriage.

There were times in this movie that really made me sick, scenes of violence, sex, or rape.I tried to think why Kubrick put those scenes in at all, but the answer is simple, Kubrick needed those scenes to get the audience to understand Alex's dark emotions. This movie first came out with an X-rating, but after all these years they pulled it down to an R-rating, does it deserve an R-rating, yes. This movie does have a lot of nudity, but it is not used as nudity, it is used as art.Kubrick paints a vivid picture of England's grim future in this unsettling satire, which boasts wit, drama, 'romance', and beautiful scenes.This is one of Kubrick's best, and it should be watched for ages to come.

I've never read the book, but I bet many others have not either, though I had read a lot of reviews about `A Clockwork Orange' before seeing it, basically because I was unable to see it. Alex de Large(Malcolm McDowell) is the leader of four droogs who steel, rape, and fight for pleasure in a futuristic society. They spend every minute of their spare time causing absolute chaos anywhere they please. But after being challenged for his leadership, Alex puts his own droogs in their place by beating them. Wanting revenge for Alex's betrayal, the gang betrays Alex and leaves him for the police by whom he is told that he will be prosecuted for murder. Alex is sentenced for 14 years in prison, but after a while with good behavior, he is given the opportunity to get out early through an experiment that reforms criminals through brainwashing to be perfect citizens. Now, a totally reformed Alex must go back and face the society that he once terrorized as a human being with no free will. What amazed me most about this movie was the classical music that was played throughout horrific violent acts that Alex committed, showing that his violence was in nature. The music assisted the idea that he was a criminal at heart and he doesn't want to change. With the movie originally being rated X, you can probably guess that the criminal acts are very graphic. But that it was makes the movie even more brilliant. It doesn't hesitate to show the viewers every aspect of brutal fight scenes or disgusting rape visuals. Every detail adds to the idea that he is a sinner, plain and simple. The acting was also great in here. Malcolm McDowell did a masterful job at his character's changes throughout the movie. The mood changes throughout the movie also. When Alex is "allowed" to be sinister, the mood is dark but yet happy. But when he is forced to be good (either in prison or after the reformation) the mood turns very dark and you can see Alex's unhappiness at what he has become. The movie shows very strong opinionated themes: Society cannot forgive other's sins and criminals are naturally evil and cannot be reformed. Disagree with this you may, but you have to respect the epic masterpiece that is A Clockwork Orange. Overall, the movie is completely flawless and is everything it was meant to be and more. The idea of a criminal being transformed into being the idol citizen was captured rather nicely, through the graphic genius of Stanley Kubrick. I highly recommend this movie.
