"Stanley Kubrick's brilliant and controversial masterpiece" - SFX
"Unmissable" - SUNDAY TIMES
"Brain-searingly brilliant" - JONATHAN ROSS, DAILY MIRROR
The old ultra-violence is back, as ultra-brillant as anything Stanley Kubrck ever directed. Demonic gang-leader Alex-Malcolm McDowell's defining performance-goes on a spree of rape, mugging and murder with his pack of "droogs". But he's a boy who also likes Beethoven's Ninth and a bit of "the old in-out, in-out". Then he finds himself at the mercy of the state and it's brainwashing experiment designed to take violence off the streets and put it at the service of the government. Wth unforgettable imagery, startling music and innvovative langauge, Kubrick's bizarrely mesmerising film fashions as a fast moving SF thriller about free-will versus state control. Hugely controversial when first released -it had the British Home Secretary demanding a private view - A Clockwork Orange earned four Academy Award nomnations*, including Best Picture. It's power to excite and perturb is undiminished; its warning about the state's encroaching hold over the individual, more relevant today than ever.
A Clockwork Orange is presented in a "matted" widescreen format preserving the 1.66:1 aspect ratio of its original theatrical exhibition. The black bars at the top and the bottom of the screen are normal for this format.
