About the film:

In a futuristic welfare state, Alex, a vicious young hoodlum, sleeps all day and spends his nights roaming the city with his droogs (friends), assaulting innocent people in the streets and in their homes. Finally captured by the police, Alex undergoes rehabilitation in the form of aversion therapy as brutal and horrifying as any of his offenses.

“A much-maligned and misunderstood classic, this is one of Kubrick’s finest movies.”

Empire Online

A Clockwork Orange (1971) was adapted from Anthony Burgess’s 1962 novel of the same name. Controversial for its graphic depictions of violence, the thought-provoking dystopian film was initially given an X rating in the United States and was banned in several countries. The film ultimately received four Academy Award nominations and was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress in 2020.

About the filmmaker:

Stanley Kubrick was an American film director, screenwriter, and producer, frequently cited as one of the most influential filmmakers in cinematic history. With his strict control over details and penchant for working from books, he crafted masterpieces in radically different genres, including Spartacus (1960), Dr. Strangelove (1964), 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), A Clockwork Orange (1971), Barry Lyndon (1975), The Shining (1980), Full Metal Jacket (1987), and Eyes Wide Shut (1999).
