Originally, we had planned to screen 2001: A Space Odyssey to mark the 50th anniversary of its release, but Warner Bros. is preventing us from doing it, because there will be an “Anniversary Print” coming out soon. Following a survey we did on our facebook page, we will present another Kubrick movie instead: A Clorkwork Orange.
In the future, a sadistic gang leader is imprisoned and volunteers for a conduct-aversion experiment, but it doesn’t go as planned.
‘’ One of the first things that will strike anyone watching A Clockwork Orange today is how thoroughly modern it looks. If not for the presence of the youthful face of established thespian Malcolm McDowell, one could be forgiven the assumption that the movie was made far more recently than 1971. A Clockwork Orange is in no way dated, and the issues it addresses are as urgent today as they were three decades ago.’’ James Berardinelli
