A Clockwork Orange (1971.)

O filmu:
A Clockwork Orange is a 1971 darkly satirical science fiction film adaptation of Anthony Burgess's 1962 novel A Clockwork Orange. The film concerns Alex (Malcolm McDowell), a charismatic, psychopathic delinquent whose pleasures are classical music (especially Beethoven), rape, and ultra-violence. He leads a small gang of thugs (Pete, Georgie, and Dim), whom he calls his droogs (from the Russian друг, “friend”, “buddy”). The film tells the horrific crime spree of his gang, his capture, and attempted rehabilitation via a controversial psychological conditioning technique. Alex narrates most of the film in Nadsat, a fractured, contemporary adolescent argot comprising Slavic (especially Russian), English, and Cockney rhyming slang. This cinematic adaptation was produced, directed, and written by Stanley Kubrick. It features disturbing, violent images, to facilitate social commentary about psychiatry, youth gangs, and other contemporary social, political, and economic subjects in a dystopian, future Britain. A Clockwork Orange features a soundtrack comprising mostly classical music selections and Moog synthesizer compositions by Wendy Carlos. A notable exception is “Singin’ in the Rain”, chosen because it was a song whose lyrics actor Malcolm McDowell knew. The now-iconic poster of A Clockwork Orange, and its images, were created by designer Bill Gold. The film also holds the record in the Guinness World Records for being the first movie in media history using the Dolby Sound system.

Plot:
Alex, a teenage hooligan in a near-future Britain, gets jailed by the police. There he volunteers as guinea pig for a new aversion therapy proposed by the government to make room in prisons for political prisoners. "Cured" of his hooliganism and released, he is rejected by his friends and relatives. Eventually nearly dying, he becomes a major embarrassment for the government, who arrange to cure him of his cure. A pivotal moment is when he and his gang break into an author's home: the book he is writing (called "A Clockwork Orange") is a plea against the use of aversion therapy, on the grounds that it turns people into Clockwork Oranges (Orang is Malay for "Man"): they are not being good from choice (sentiments later echoed by the prison chaplain). The film reflects this: many bad scenes in a Clockwork Orange are accompanied by jolly music; if we are to experience them as we should, we have to do it consciously, by realising they are bad, and not because the director tells us so through the use of music and images.

Uh, jedan od meni najdražih filmova meni možda najdražeg redatelja.
Alex je ultimativni "villain", u rangu s Perkinsom, Hopkinsom ili recentnijim Ledgerom.
Film je svakako ispred svog vremena, od vizualnosti do pametne upotrebe Kubricke druge strasti, glazbe.
I danas mi je, kao i za Odiseju, teško povjerovati da je ovaj film star 40 godina.

Upravo sjedim u Clockwork Orange majci. :)

Silver-tight like spider legs
I never wanted it to ever spoil,
But flies will lay their eggs...

rijetko naletim na film koji ostavi baš neki trajni utisak na na mene, a ovaj je bio jedan od takvih.
nažalost, dosta se slabo sjećam radnje, iako znam da su dojmovi bili više nego pozitivni, al budem ga ja kad tad opet pogledala.

Sramotno da ga dosad nisam pogledao znajući koliki je klasik u pitanju, no svakako ću ga pogledati!

E pa loše misliš, a otvaram topice za filmove kojih nema već otvorenih, neke sam gledao, neke nisam, neke ću pogledati, al samo kažem za ovaj klasik ovdje da je šteta kako dosad nisam ga pogledao, al zato ga mislim svakako pogledati!

originalan, brutalan, upečatljiv i štošta još. Jedno u nizu Kubrickovih remek-djela koji odmah u uvodu započinje genijalno. Must see film za apsolutno svakog filmoljupca jer ovakvo pisanje povijesti filmske industrije se rijetko viđa, pogotovo u današnje vrijeme

Ona scena sa sexom je prenajbolja. Za to vrijeme svira mislim turski marš.

Meni je nekako najdraža duga uvodna scena... glazba, interijer, piće, bizarnost svega toga...
I mean, a few little tiny murders and everyone just freaks out

Pregenijalan film, sada mi je postao omiljen Kubrickov film skupa sa The Shining. Ne znam stvarno što mi je bolje u filmu i što me više impresioniralo: klasična glazba, režija Kubricka, fascinantan scenarij ili maestralna gluma Malcolma McDowella za kojeg sam danas gledajući film skužio da je to isti lik koji je glumio dr. Loomisa u remakeu i nastavku remakea Halloween, dok mi se tamo nije baš naročito svidio ovdje je doslovce maestralan!

A Clockwork Orange (1971) - Jako neobičan film, i opet taj Kubrick, kad pogledam njegov film moram prvo sjest i razmislit šta sam gledo. Orginalan i ima zasigurno jednog od boljih junaka te izvrsnu glumu. - 8/10
You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.

jednostavno genijalan, meni možda i najdraži film ikada
Film koji redovito gledam, ima neki utjecaj na mene kakav ni jedan drugi film nema
neki mix uznemirenosti i opuštenosti, neopisivo

10/10
