Beethowenin yhdeksäs sinfonia, Korova Milkbar, vähän vanhaa kunnon ultraväkivaltaa. Stanley Kubrickin A Clockwork Orange on edelleen omalaatuinen, hirveä ja ravisteleva trippi.
Stomping, whomping, stealing, singing, tap-dancing, violating, Derby-topped teddy-boy hooligan Alex (Malcolm McDowell) has his own way of having a good time. He has it at the tragic expense of others.
Alex’s journey from amoral punk to brainwashed proper citizen forms the dynamic arc of Stanley Kubrick’s future-shook vision of Anthony Burgess‘s novel. Unforgettable images, startling musical counterpoints, the fascinating language used by Alex and his pals – Kubrick shapes them into a shattering whole.(Sulje)
“What our nightmares have accustomed us to see in dreams, Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange shows us in broad daylight. It is one of the most unsettling films in the whole of cinema.”
