My Hurting Eyes
After seeing this generally disagreeable assault on the senses, I need a rest now, possibly even a rest home for a while.

I last saw this turkey when it was released in 1971, the year that I graduated from college. I couldn't appreciate it at the age of 22 and still don't like it at the ripe old age of 67. I decided to watch it again because I had just viewed Kubrick's outstanding "Paths of Glory", one of the best films that I have ever seen on the subject of war and the arrogant abuse of power, and I was very curious as to why IMDb subscribers rated this film a stunning 8.3, which is very rare for any movie and ranks it as one of the top 100 movies of all time. After my second viewing, I'm at an even bigger loss about this very high rating and ranking than I was 45 ago.

I believe that the often unbearable level of intense brutality in this movie is enough to provoke actual, real-life bloodshed in persons who are already inclined to be violent, specifically against women and defenseless elderly people. As my country, the USA, is currently experiencing a very dangerous epidemic of horrifying, violent incidents, including several recent mass murders, movies such as this, are not at all helpful to our present situation, which has become a national crisis. I can't see a single benefit of this violence to me as a viewer or to my society as a whole. That having been said, I still believe in the first amendment and in freedom of expression, but after seeing this relentless display of viciousness, most of which seems to be merely for its own sake or perhaps fulfills a desire to shock viewers and for no other purpose, I find myself struggling with my own deepest convictions.

I read several of the glowing reviews of this movie by others on IMDb. Many described this as a "masterpiece" and an "extraordinary work of art" without clearly explaining why and without the use of adequate, specific examples that support their high ratings and adoration.

Personally, I could not relate to the central character, to his vicious gang, or to any other of the movie's unlikable or weak personalities in any way. During the "rehabilitation" phase of the movie, I could not understand what society or government, today or in the future, would elect to employ the methods that were used. The future world that was created, consisting of ugly, vulgar works of art and interior designs, abandoned theaters, perverse behavior, uncontrollable sex drive, constant physical abuse, disorder, neglect, filth, and general disrespect for anything and everything, was just too creepy for me to want to experience for even one hour, let alone two hours and seventeen minutes. Another major offense was the inappropriate use of Beethoven's magnificent music as it accompanies the most unpleasant visual images conceivable. It's too bad that deceased artists have no say as to how their works are used after they are gone, but who ever said that life was fair? I gave this movie a rating of four out of ten only because it did manage to produce a response of utter revulsion from within me, but I can't think of any other accomplishment. Not my cup of tea.

One of Kubrick's best
To say that the Alex character from Stanley Kubrick's "A Clockwork Orange" is unlikable is like saying the Manson family was sort of bad. He's not just unlikable; he's despicable, terrifying, sick, twisted, and ultimately a haunting embodiment of all our greatest realistic fears and worries. But Alex does not see himself as a sick person. The key to this is in his voice-over narrative.

Alex does not see himself as a pervert, just as we do not see our own flaws and Ramond Babbitt did not see his own autism. To us, we are all normal, which is a scary thought.

"A Clockwork Orange," which was originally released in 1973 after an appeal for an R rating (that was granted after originally being tagged as an X-rated motion picture), had been banned from Britain for close to thirty years. Most film fans in Europe will tell you that they had seen the movie on grainy bootleg videotapes years ago when they were young and curious.

But for those of us lucky enough to enjoy (or squirm through) "A Clockwork Orange" in its entire odd splendor, it is an experience you are likely to never forget. Its characters, its style, its subject matter, its explicit material--all of it combines to create a marvelous whole that will stay with you long after the credits stop rolling.

Essentially a tale focused on Alex's journeys in jail and his process of being re-submitted to the world after inhumane treatments to cure the evil out of him, "A Clockwork Orange" is indeed as offbeat as its title.

All tales of redemption involve characters that we gradually come to appreciate, or like, or--at the very least--learn to tolerate. Not "A Clockwork Orange." Our narrator remains the same throughout the movie, always an incarnation of everything wrong in today's modern world. He goes through no cleansing process and by the end of the film we like him less than we did at the beginning. That's daring.

By Using Two Extremes, Kubrick Fails to State Anything About Humanity
Alex DeLarge is one of the most despicable characters ever portrayed in film. He steals, assaults, rapes, and kills without a second thought. He does not have psychotic charisma, nor does he have strong bonds with friends, family, or lovers. He's a true monster, with no positive human characteristics.

Which is a titanic flaw of the film. Alex DeLarge is not a human being. He is only a caricature, used to force a point. He is impossible to relate to, and isn't relevant to 99.99% of the population.

Yet we are to take him as some kind of tragic anti-hero? We are supposed to be terrified by his forced psychological conditioning? I don't buy it. Every scene in the film was evidence that Alex was not stable enough to be a productive member of society and would never change. If he wasn't mentally neutered, he would have only harmed more people until his untimely end. People may blather on how it robs Alex of his freedom of choice, how the government is even worse than Alex, but at the end of the day, they know which version they'd rather invite to dinner.

Honestly, this story could have been great if it allowed for some sense of moral ambiguity, some shreds of humanity to both the violent, rebellious Alex and the pathetic, shell-shocked Alex. It would make the government's actions far more questionable, and Alex's character far more dramatic. But as is, Alex reaps what he sows, but avoids true punishment through luck and politics.

The film wasn't lifelessly drab, so it keeps one more star. Stanley Kubrick knows where to point the camera, if nothing else. But its lack of realistic character makes any of its statements debunked before they reach the debate. Its the thinking man's exploitation film, and deserves as much respect.

Worst Hollywood farce ever created!
It should be said that one of the additional causes of my distaste for this movie stems from the blatant lack of regard for the original source material. As such this film is also a Stanley Kubrick film and for some god awful reason people seem to think that his crap is gold.

The film itself was denounced by the author of the book, he was horrified that this was to be the book he would be remembered by. Thus it's being taken from another mans words, so less than 25% of this movie is unoriginal work taken from another and throwing the author into the trash much like he did with Stephen King's the shining and most of his so called symbolism and symmetry isn't anything different than what any film school grad student loves to experiment with. He skips some of the best parts in the book including WHY THE MOVIE IS CALLED CLOCKWORK ORANGE! In fact the story's ending itself is completely destroyed by Stanly reading the American version of the book which has one less chapter that explains the pinnacle point of the entire body of art. The movie itself has become something of controversy by the amount of disturbing material but really it's just plain annoying he completely loses the whole message and symbolism of the violence choosing instead to just suffocate us with this crap. (including choosing to show the titular character getting a cavity search instead of the whole experience of him in jail!) Really that's all the director adds is just more senseless boring innuendo. I'm not going to sit here and explain more since all of you who will read this probably are Kubrick worshipers and think I'm completely wrong. If I could talk to you I would but I can only write a review about it and I don't want to waste words to a deaf audience. If you want to know what I'm talking about than you can pick up the book, the new one with all chapters that is now being sold in the U.S.A. And has an insightful forward about the failure of the movie.

This is the first review I've written and I just had to because of the cult icon and classic this has become and it's pathetic! I can't believe people could think that this movie had anymore validation than crap. Please PLEASE someone remake this film so i can erase this film from my mind, you could do a lot worse as far as remakes have gone.

A Clockwork Lemon?
The flawed genius of Stanley Kubrick.

There is no doubt that this film was cutting-edge when made.

The censors must have had quite a time deciding how much sex, violence and colorful language the film's audience were going to get. But it isn't so shocking now.

This is my summary of the film.

Typical Kubrick: wonderful story, brilliant acting (as a result of ingenious casting) and clever cinematography. And don't forget the twisted, wacky, dark, funny script.

Untypical Kubrick: lame ending. So unfulfilling that I'd venture to say it is his most over-rated film. Still, as with Spielberg, a 'bad' Kubrick film is still better than most other 'good' films made.

Shitty
Awful acting, awful direction and awful screen play. All in all a shitty movie. I have no issues with the content matter, im not saying the content is poor but the execution is. And lord knows why it is one of the controversial movies, i don't see anything controversial about it. Im a big fan of controversial cinema but it neither amounts to a good controversy nor to a well directed movie. It not even worth a single star but that is as low as i can go. There is nothing more to say about this movie but IMDb wants me to at least write 10 lines of review so im gonna add few more lines. Its shitty and a big waste of time. Do not watch this. Its better to watch a cartoon instead. Its like a poor comedy that pretends to be different but its just shitty. Im sure that's ought to do it. Thanks

Satire As Subtle As A Flying Mallet
This is a great example of how time can create a mass consensus.We don't watch films like The Godfather,Citizen Kane,or Schindlers List and decide for ourselves what we think of them.Its just predetermined that these films are classics and above the normal critical process.

A Clockwork Orange is the case in front of us here.First there is the bravura technical skill of the film.Lets talk about it.Kubrick is in complete command here.Every extended tracking shot,every perfectly composed frame,every close up,every piece of music in a scene is exactly as the director intended it to be.Few filmmakers ever could create as singular a vision as Stanley Kubrick does in almost every film he made.

The problem here is the unwillingness of Kubrick to allow the audience to think for itself or come to a conclusion about anything in the film without shouting it from the rooftop,and shoving our face in it,again,and again and again.Yes,the film is brutal satire.We aren't meant to sympathize with Alex.We aren't meant to sympathize with anyone in the film.And this is hammered home to us continually,with extreme closeups of bulging eyes and faces shaking as if from palsy.We cant let the audience figure out for themselves what the tone and point of view of a scene is.We must let them know beyond the shadow of a doubt.A perfect example of this is when Alex is carried into the house of the man he had brutalized years before,whose wife he had raped while singing "Singing In The Rain".The man doesn't make the connection about who he is,until Alex is taking a bath,and starts singing the song again.Five seconds of this,and a quick reaction shot of the victim would have told you all you needed to know.But no,the song goes on for at least two minutes,and the man starts getting the bulging eyes and uncontrollable shaking.This whole thing extends to the next scene where the man is watching Alex eat.And it goes on forever,with no new information being given to us.

As I stated at the beginning,this film is the recipient of reflexive acknowledged classic status.I think that if we look at this film with objective eyes almost 40 years later,we see a film of great technical skill,with major narrative flaws.Kubrick showed us in film after film how misanthropic he was.This movie is the perfect example of this.

what a disappointment....
I just saw this film for the first time about an hour ago, and I really didn't think Alex was cool. In fact not at all. He seemed intelligent but like most psychopath's that really doesn't say much. I really dug the soundtrack and the point Kubrick was making on violence. I also thought it had to do with the media and how his parents just believed more in the papers than in their own son. It struck a chord with a lot of social issues that are still problems to this day, but it could have been shorter and have illustrated the same points. I also found some scenes to be really bland, almost like eyes wide shut. As usual it seems like people hyped up this movie to be the end all be all of all films when in reality I'd give it a 6 out of 10. six because it really left this impact with me, you can just tell the picture had this magnitude of power behind it (some scenes are really jarring)....but with richer dialogue and a shorter storyline, I would've been more satisified.

The number one film of all time. **** out of ****
A CLOCKWORK ORANGE (1971) ****

Starring: Malcolm McDowell, Patrick Magee, Michael Bates, Warren Clarke, and Adrienne Corri Written and Directed by Stanley Kubrick 137 minutes Rated R (for strong explicit sexual content and rape, perverse nudity, brutal violence, and some language)

By Blake French:

Stanley Kubrick's "A Clockwork Orange" holds the recent record of being the number one film of all time on my charts. The film is everything that you'll never want to watch. The scenes are disturbing, gut wrenching, mind twisting, and way over the top. In result, "A Clockwork Orange" has the most powerful and overwhelming dramatic impact that I have ever experienced in a mainstream film.

"A Clockwork Orange" is the story of a young man named Alex DeLarge, who is, by day, a regular student who lives with his parents at home, but, by night, a homicidal rapist/killer with his accomplices who dress up like demented clowns at a bleak freak show. He and his buddies weasel their way into the happy homes housing innocent people by chanting the same deceiving phrase every night: they scream that their friend has been critically wounded in an accident near by--and plead to use their telephone to call for help.

For a few unfortunate souls, this devious trick proves to be successful in nature. One night, however, a woman known as "The Cat Lady," refuses their plead, and calls the police in suspicion. Alex, being both smart and sneaky, somehow manages to break into this perverted woman's home, while his accomplices wait outside. Once indoors, a fight begins. A struggle featuring a sex toy owned by "Cat Lady," one that not only causes panicked arousal, but also is featured as the weapon of her graphic and disturbing murder. Alex quickly flees the scene once the police sirens reach his shaky ears, but when he gets back to his pal's waiting outside, they return their experiences with him by bashing him over the head with a hard object, allowing their jumbled escape, but his certain demise.

After the process of being sent to prison, Alex grows to learn to tell offices and guards what they like to hear. He reads the bible, is never involved with any major fights or complications, and almost volunteers for a new kind of experiment. An experiment so probationary it is still being tested and held under wraps. What it does, though a series of "sessions," is cure a violent individual from his sickness; he will feel terrible pain if involved in any sort of violence after the medicine takes place.

The scenes involving the "cure" of Alex's disturbances are truly emotionally troublesome. They are so explicit and detailed that I myself felt tempted to look away from the screen at points. This is not a film for those who are prone to walk out of movies, those who are easily offended, or especially for those with week stomachs. This is the most grizzly enumerated film I have even screened, but it happens to be one of the most perfect and precise in message. I definitely don't recommend the production to everyone, though.

The soundtrack to "A Clockwork Orange" is one of the most inspirational and spirited ones I have ever heard; right up there with the turns to "The Graduate" (1967). Although the actual music is far from fitting each individual scene, the overall presence is not only worth listening to, but also worth the purchase price.

Here, a young Malcolm McDowell explores the character of a lifetime with vivid imagination and tremendous description. His character fits him very well as an actor. Even though the character is meant to be despised, I couldn't help but to be very convinced and interested in his sick, demented, psychotic mind. Most of this is because of the flawless point of view the film contains, one that both provokes empathy and involvement. It investigates the mind of a killer, rapist, and a confused, somewhat harmless, adolescent--all existing in the same character. This is no doubt the character, and the performance, that inspired a generation.

As well as being a movie of violent and sexual repulsion, Stanley Kubrick's direction to "A Clockwork Orange" also forces us to investigate deep down in ourselves and chew on the idea of us being in the character's shoes. There is a scene in this movie that forces two parents to make a decision of a lifetime. After receiving the treatments he volunteered for, Alex returns to his household only to discover that the only mom and dad he's even known have rented his old room out to some strange college kid, who is said to have been there for them during many hard times--like a real son. His parents must make a choice: to throw their only son, who has suffered for years in turn for making others suffer, out of the house for good, or allow him to return with open arms trusting that he is "cured." Well, dear reader, what would you do? Brought to you by Warner Bros.

The parody in MAD Magazine titled 'A Clockwork Lemon' is the perfect review for this film
Well, I like countless others was swept in to watching this supposed Classic by the reviews and the acclaim, however one thing struck me as odd, why did Roger Ebert give this film a bad review? Well I had to find out. I started watching the film with uncertainty and was initially haunted by its opening theme when the title flashed on screen. The opening scene, as the camera zoomed outwards, tingled my dislike for the film, the nudity of the female statues. I thought to myself, well this was expected, but as I watched on, due to the violent scenes, including the fight with the other gang and the rape of the writers wife; I started to feel an extreme revulsion towards the film and switched the screen off. Then I thought to myself, it might get better, so I continued. But it only got worse. My 1 star out of 10 review for this film is because any director, even Stanley Kubrick, who seeks to glorify violence and nudity will never stay in my good books. On top of this grotesque and dirty scenery, violence and nudity was coupled with the mesmerizing music of perhaps the greatest composer to have ever lived, Ludwig Van Beethoven. This was where I put my foot down, for, as Alex says, when he is being tortured with Beethoven's music by being showed violence with it, that it is sin. Stanley Kubrick has committed sin and the writer of the book is absolutely demented. Instead of this film, another one that portrays the oppressive nature of governments, systems and organisations that attempt to control our choices; and leave us without the freedom to choose, 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest' should be watched because without nudity and extremely less violence it conveys its message. And the book was written and published the same year as Clockwork. This film(Orange) is a complete and utter failure and those who like it only prove that like Alex they also have a taste for the old ultra violence.
