the Movie...Directed by Stanley Kubrick (1971, 136 min.)
Hollywood Forever Cemetery / $14
Kubrick’s extraordinary vision of a dystopic future is a demented fun house ride of a political satire. Pulsating with pop imagery, vivid colors and synth melodies it is a future of wild design and psychedelic cool. Malcolm McDowell is superb as Alex, a modern youth with a taste for violence who becomes the subject of a state experiment. A Clockwork Orange is a film only Kubrick could bring us: at once brainy, unsettling and darkly funny.
