a clockwork orange review

A Clockwork Orange principally tells the story of Alex DeLarge, an "ultraviolent" youth in the futuristic Britain. As with all his luck, his eventually runs out and he's arrested and convicted of murder and rape. While in prison,  Alex learns of an experimental program in which convicts are programmed to detest violence. If he goes through the program, his sentence will be reduced and he will be back on the streets and he will be back in the streets sooner than expected. But Alex's ordeals are far from over once he hits the mean streets of Britain that he had a hand in creating.                                                      
Basically, A Clockwork Orange is one of the greatest films iv'e seen so far. The creative use of violence and sex at the same time is one of the blasts why I love this film. This film is equally a creative work of art and I thought Stanley Kubrick did an outstanding interpretation of the not-so-famous Anthony Burgess novel. At first I watched the film, I was actually disturbed in most all of the scenes. I couldn't resist the first rape scene which I found disturbing at the same time very artistic. The performances in this film is very intense and realistic.

Malcolm Mcdowell did a very fantastic performance in the film. I really love his portrayal of Alex DeLarge and he's very fit and perfect for that character. I found his character very dark and witty and he did that very nicely. Malcolm McDowell is one of the best and the most brave actors I have seen in my life. The Ludovico technique scene was very disturbing a bit but I thought that Malcolm did a very impressive performance there.

Stanley Kubrick was one of the best and the legendary directors of our time when I saw Eyes Wide Shut. He did made the film very unique and I hope I can find the novel by Burgess. He is very visionary that when I come up with the point that he is my best director of all time. What I love about Kubrick is that he come up with a really impressive portrait of a scene. He, I know, did the most beautiful shots i have seen in any movies. A Clockwork Orange was one of those movies. A Clockwork Orange is a powerful piece of art and photography. Rating this film as X is a must because of some disturbing scenes that you might handle.

The cinematography, which I said earlier, was very impressive. Very, very unique and classy. I almost forgot who did the cinematography of the film. Wait, wait, yeah, John Alcott. Alcott was one of the most influenced cinematographer around and he made I guess most of Kubrick's films like Barry Lyndon, The Shining and a little bit of 2001: A Space Odyssey. So, yeah, John Alcott, you are the best cinematographer I have seen in a long time. Great job!

Outstanding performance. Outstanding story. Outstanding cinematography. Outstanding use of sex, violence and Beethoven orchestral music. Outstanding direction from Stanley Kubrick. What more you can say about this film. A definitely a must see film for mature audiences.

The geek rates it 10/10!
