i always, always, like books better. but malcolm macdowell made this for me. was it a flawless adaption? not by any means. was it more “times appropriate” for sure. assuming that the movie alex was 18 (and not 14 or 13 or whatever he was in the book) macdowell really sold this role.
supporting cast nailed it, too. deltoid’s voice is one of the funniest things in existence. dim’s face is just too perfect. and of course old biddy yoga bitch’s sass and crass are just top notch.
this movie is close to my heart.
