Plot

United Kingdom. In an undetermined future, Alex (Malcolm McDowell) is the leader of a gang of «droogs» who walks the streets of London cultivating his sole two passions: ultraviolence and Beethoven’s music. He and his young followers vent their most violent instincts on any person crossing their path. They beat, rape and terrorize their victims. When their escalation of terror culminates in murder, Alex is arrested and sent to prison. There he volunteers for an ground-breaking re-education experiment aimed at drastically eliminating in convicts the slightest trace of an antisocial conduct. (Filmaffinity)

Movie Reviews

“An ideological mess, a paranoid right-wing fantasy (…) It pretends to oppose the police state and forced mind control, but all it really does is celebrate the nastiness of its hero (…) Rating: ?? (out of 4)” Roger Ebert: rogerebert.com 

“A much-maligned and misunderstood classic, this is one of Kubrick’s finest movies (…) Rating: ????? (out of 5)” Kim Newman: Empire 

“[It] is so beautiful to look at and to hear that it dazzles the senses and the mind” Vincent Canby: The New York Times
