A Clockwork Orange (Stanley Kubrick, UK, 1971)

Kubrick’s contributions are his wit and his eye. The wit, too much at times, is as biting as in Dr. Strangelove, and the production, while of another order, is as spectacular as in 2001.
— Gene Siskel

In tribute to the late Warren Clarke we're showing Stanley Kubrick's brilliant 1971 film, A Clockwork Orange, in which Clarke memorably plays disgruntled young hooligan, Dim. Set in a dystopian future England, Kubrick's adaptation of Anthony Burgess's classic novella still packs a punch after all these years. And Malcolm McDowellis simply unforgettable as Alex - the terrifying teenage murderer who agrees to undergo a radical new form of aversion therapy in order to rid him of the impulse to do evil. Viddy well!
