Film Review: A Clockwork Orange


Title: A Clockwork Orange
Release: 1971
Director: Stanley Kubrick
Actors: Malcolm McDowell, Michael Bates, Warren Clarke

It wouldn’t surprise me at all if you couldn’t recognise any names or even the title of the film itself, considering how old the film was when I finally watched it. I would have to admit though, it was a very pleasant (although it might be a wrong word to be used to describe this film) experience.

Usually, the kind of absurdity I found in this film would put me off. It is a kind of film which was not made for general likings. I quite understood why this film was considered unusual the first time it was released. The amount of sexual and violent scene in the film, although it is probably nothing compared to nowadays film, would have been outrage some people, some good forty years ago.

I enjoyed this film. As I said, the absurdity like the one I found in this film usually put me off, so I should say that this film is not everyone’s cup of tea (like “Pulp Fiction” was not mine). However, if you haven’t watched this and you have time, you might want to try and watch this for once.

If you don’t like it, fair enough. I think it is a “love it or hate it” film, so not much I could say to change anyone’s opinion about it. But if you do end up liking it, you would thank me to recommend you one of the best thought provoking classic film.

You’re welcome.
