An amazingly perverted, deep, sociological psychological philosophical love story.Add to that the most innovative camera work that was invented especially for this film, and as I said in the beginning – what's not to love?
Ah, the masterpiece, the most sophisticated of them all, the most culturally controversial manifestation of cinematic prowess. Ok? That was what you were expecting to read, no? that is the concensus. That is what everybody says. Well, you know what, I hate to disappoint you but I am not going to go on a rant about how they are wrong, because they are right. I agree with every word.It is the strangest , most thought provoking cinematic masterpiece of its time, and has been rivaled by very select few since.

Welly, welly, welly, welly, welly, welly, well.
To what do I owe the extreme pleasure of this surprising visit?"
Great movie.Now. I have around four hundred words more to go, but I think we covered most of it. We can talk about the genius of malcom mcdowell and the iconic figure he portrayed, we can talk about his all encompassing evil appearance, that crazy look in the eye, that smirk on his face. We can talk about the re-education scene and we can go on and on about the complexity mcdowell manages to bring to the role.Na. let's talk about Beethoven.
I am not a big Beethoven fan. I said it before. But here… here Beethoven just fits. I am quite astonished that the ninth didn’t appear in the credits for the film. I am sure the recording was mentioned and all copyrights covered and bla bla bla, but that is not what I am saying, I want to see the ninth on the credits.Just under malcom mcdowell.And in the part of Beethoven's ninth , beethoven's ninth.
A supporting actor at least. I would say she was the female counterpart of mcdowell, the main female actor as it may be. Love interest? Check. Adoration and relationship? Check. Heartbreaking separation? Check. and the inevitable happy reunion.And that my friends, is how you write a love story.
What you got back home, little sister, to play your fuzzy warbles on? I bet you got little save pitiful, portable picnic players. Come with uncle and hear all proper! Hear angel trumpets and devil trombones. You are invited."
An amazingly perverted, deep, sociological psychological philosophical love story.Add to that the most innovative camera work that was invented especially for this film, and as I said in the beginning – what's not to love?I really admire kubrik for doing that movie. It takes some set of chime bells to try to pitch that story, with the ninth and the violence to a board room full of movie executives. They must thought he was barking mad. Which he is. Something we are all grateful for.
No. No! NO! Stop it! Stop it, please! I beg you! This is sin! This is sin! This is sin! It's a sin, it's a sin, it's a sin!
Dr. Brodsky :
Sin? What's all this about sin?
That! Using Ludwig van like that! He did no harm to anyone. Beethoven just wrote music!
Clockwork orange was, is, and will always be one of my favorite movies, and I am so confident in that belief that even the fact I share this common ground with a lot of people doesn’t cheapen it. And that says something.
I woke up. The pain and sickness all over me like an animal. Then I realized what it was. The music coming up from the floor was our old friend, Ludwig Van, and the dreaded Ninth Symphony."
