Stomping, whomping, stealing, singing, tap-dancing, violating. Derby-topped hooligan Alex (Malcolm McDowell) has a good time – at the tragic expense of others. His journey from amoral punk to brainwashed proper citizen and back again forms the dynamic arc of Stanley Kubrick’s future-shock vision of Anthony Burgess’ novel.
Controversial when first released, A Clockwork Orange won New York Film Critics Best Picture and Director awards and earned four Oscar® nominations, including Best Picture. Its power still entices, shocks and holds us in its grasp.
