Brilliant film. I haven't read the book either, but wouldn't if there wasn't a glossary in the back.

That was one of my biggest problems with the film. Well, not the fact that it makes Alex sympathetic, as such, but rather the way it went about it - by making pretty much every other character an unlikeable, personality-free drone and Alex the only one who seems alive.
I see your point, his parents being weak-minded pushovers that any teenager would abuse the trust of and everybody else in an authority position just tries to use him for their own gains.

That said, as Alex is our narrator it could all be intentional and this is how he views everyone around him. He had a fairly big ego so I wouldn't be surprised if he saw others as less alive than himself. I think all but a couple of reaction shots to the wheelchair bound writer towards the end have Alex in the scene which would support this.

the fight scene in the old theater is AMAZING one of those parts in movies that isn't supposed to be funny per se but is just so amazing that you end up laughing anyways. as for the rest of the movie, very disturbing, very loud, very entertaining. i don't think i really understand it but i do like it a lot.
