Description

Being the adventures of a young man...who loved a bit of the old ultra-violence...went to jail, was brainwashed...and came out cured...or was he? In a futuristic welfare state, Alex (Malcolm McDowell), a vicious young hoodlum, sleeps all day and spends his nights roaming the city with his droogs (friends), assaulting innocent people in the streets and in their homes. Finally captured by the police, Alex undergoes rehabilitation in the form of aversion therapy as brutal and horrifying as any of his offenses.

  • A Thematic and Artistic Masterwork

    This is the most intelligently provacative movie I have ever seen. It is also the most perfectly realized artistic movie masterwork I have ever seen, with the exception of Kubrick's equally-amazing 2001: A Space Odyssey. All of the elements of this movie - the acting, the direction, the cinematography, the music, and the script, work together perfectly to jolt you to attention, keep you riveted, and challenge you with insight at the perfectly dark ending that leaves bare the obvious realities about human violence that are not going to be easily solved if we are to retain our humanity. This is one of the very few "must-see" movies for every movie-lover, even though it is often a difficult movie to watch. See it.

    First of all i wanna say that im a huge fan of Kubrick who also made The Shining which is my favorite horror movie of all times and now this where to start..This movie is by far the best ive ever since the performances were amazing despite the movie having bunch of hater like the saying haters gonna hate.im 17 and i enjoyed every second of it and im sure everyone loved it as well we all fell in love and hated Alex at the same time but i dont know i jist love him for being a psycho reminds me of Tate for some reason :) so i give this a huge 5 star for making another masterpiece.

    There is no other movie like this. Sociopath, violence, capture, treatment, redemption, karma. Can’t stop saying ‘Ludwig Van!’
  • Sick, violent and of no redeeming value

    My advice is that unless you want the content of this movie to dog you for years, don't watch it. If you have a passing interest in classical music, avoid it at all costs. While this movie is a work of art of sorts, it makes no positive contribution to society, but rather degrades it. While I respect Kubrik's effort here, I think it represents a disservice to the art.
  • This is a classic of the ultra-violent!!!

  • Wrong Aspect Ratio

    The film should be in 1.66:1, but it’s cropped to 1.78:1. A lot of people probably won’t notice or care but since this film is a classic, I think it’s odd to needlessly crop the frame.
  • Wrong Aspect Ratio and Horrible Transfer

    A Clockwork Orange is 5 star film that I can only give 2 stars based on the print that was used to make the transfer for iTunes. This is a classic film that deserves to be made available in a much better transfer from Apple. The colors in the iTunes print are washed out and muted, and in some cases drastically off, as if the transfer was made from a faded print from years old. And, as another viewer wrote, the iTunes transfer was done in the wrong aspect ratio, further diminishing Kubrick's final vision. Kubrick famously watched every print of his movies before they were sent to theaters, and it's sad that his attention to quality and detail is flagrantly ignored by this version of the film. If you currently have Amazon Prime you can see what I'm talking about by looking at the quality of the print they're streaming vs the quality of this print. I hope that Apple will update this transfer with a new, cleaner and more accurate version.
