A Clockwork Orange


For those who are not familiar with this film:

Alex, a violent juvenile in the near future, is caught after a number of brutal rapes and murders. While imprisoned, he submits to a controversial experiment to make criminals ill at the mildest suggestion of violence or conflict. Now Alex's victims want to welcome him back into society with the same enthusiasm Alex had always exhibited when performing his crimes.




Verdict:

I don't know why but I found watching this film again after so many years a disappointment. I can't fault the way the film is directed, written, etc. but the shock factor of this film has long been surpassed by so many other quality films. I actually found that for me this film has not survived the test of time, the violence (?) is fairly tame by today's standards and at best there is a bit of titillation.

I give this film 6 out of 10

I think I'll go for some Jappornanimetion for my next film



Later Peeps

What we were after now was the old surprise visit. That was a real kick and good for laughs and lashings of the old ultraviolence.
