Philosophical, religious and practical point of view on moral, political agenda, bureaucratic absurdity and press media - all meshed together in a satire where simplicity of good and evil comes as an obsolete. The use of violence as if it's music video for classical music, colorful characters, McDowell's brilliant performance and distinct set design along with masterful script make this gem among cult classics.
This is the third viewing of Stanley Kubrick's controversial masterpiece. At first, I thought it's just glorified its violence and sexual contents and presented it in an artsy way. I guess I was wrong. It's more than that. This adaptation of Anthony Burgess' novel is satire or criticism of society, freewill, and government policy. The true purpose of this movie will appear in the near of the ending. Truly masterpiece
I saw this film when it first came out on a big screen. It left me bewildered. Malcolm McDowell was great but I was not in love with the over-the-top acting and the heavy handedness. I have just seen it for the second time. On a big screen. It took on a bravura I was not aware of initially. I thought much of the film was sharp. McDowell's performance grew in stature. My feelings about the film are still unresolved.
