A Clockwork Orange .....

I seen that film last night and it still has the power to shock me , not surprising it was banned in the UK for all those years.

Seriously though this film is not for the faint hearted , made me a bit sick afterwards.

Sometimes i felt sorry for alex but then he did deserve it.

The dialogue and language in the film makes me laugh , when i go back to college on monday im gonna speak like them.

" steaky wakey , chippy whippy " - LOVE IT lol.

The film really does reflect the times of British culture and there images of the future.

I sometimes forget that this is set in 1995 and not 1971 when it was made.

Stanley really did take a risk with this movie , at the time it didn't work but many years after his death it really had paid off.



This film contains scenes of Rape and violence.

Watch it all.

Its the sickest film ive ever seen , wasnt big budget production either or massive special effects, just a humble script based on a book with warts and all.

A very beautiful and complex film. If you like 2001: A Space Odyssey you'll probably like this film because it basically is the same story just told in different locations. Go see this movie if you haven't.

That always cracks me up. It's a very quoteable film, and I actually think for once i prefer the film to the book.

It amazes me that back then they thought in the future we would of a miz of a language , they are speaking nadsat which is generally a mix of russian and english .

The author of the book anthony burgess almost hits the nail on the head , because today we speak txt and such.

Maybe they thought communism would spread and thats why in the future we spoke a mix of russian and english ?

Quality film

This movie is probably in the Top3 of my favourite movies ever...!
It can be a lowbudget film, but it has so many messages, and it has strong themes to deal with, and the way it was constructed makes it a real piece of art!
