Memorable Quotes and Dialog:

"There was me, that is Alex, and my three droogs, that is Pete, Georgie and Dim. And we sat in the Korova Milkbar, trying to make up our razudoks what to do with the evening."
  - Alex (Malcolm McDowell), the "humble narrator"

Entertainment Reviews:

Los Angeles Times - 07/15/1999
"...A CLOCKWORK ORANGE is still potent and though-provoking..."
Entertainment Weekly - 06/13/2003
"...CLOCKWORK is a movie about movies -- and sex and power and music and Sovietism -- that works as a head trip by driving for the gut. Consider it Kubrick's most surrealistic feat..."
Total Film - 12/01/2000
"...It still shocks....Provocative..."
Sight and Sound - 10/01/2000
"...[The film] remains every bit as tantalising as it ever was..."
Premiere - 04/01/2004
"[Featuring] the multiple charms of McDowell's performance."
Entertainment Weekly - 05/27/2011
"Looking back now, CLOCKWORK ORANGE may be subversive, shocking, and sadistic. But it's also clearly a satire about free will." -- Grade: A

Plot Synopsis:

A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, based on the prescient novel by Anthony Burgess, is director Stanley Kubrick's masterful satire on crime and punishment in an ultraviolent future.

Production Notes:

  • Theatrical release: February 9, 1972
  • The sculptures in the Korova Milkbar were based on the work of sculptor Allen Jones.
  • The blunt object the cat woman uses to attack Alex is a bust of Ludwig Van Beethoven, Alex's favorite composer and whose 9th Symphony accidentally becomes part of Alex's conditioning.
  • One of only two movies rated X on its original release (the other being Midnight Cowboy (1969)) to be nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards.
  • Stanley Kubrick asked Pink Floyd if he could use their "Atom Heart Mother Suite" in the soundtrack. However, because Kubrick wanted unlimited license to determine what portions or edits of the song he used, the band turned him down.
