Still as shocking and brilliant as ever Posted by: from: on Unlike many of the films which shocked the world years ago, Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange, which was initially released in the 70's with an X-rating and was banned in the UK until very recently, still has the power to shock those who see it. It's a fairly bleak tale about Alex DeLarge, the head of a vicious teen gang in a future version of London who is betrayed by his gang and forced to account for his crimes. What is still shocking today is the extent to which Kubrick portrays the violence of the gang. Nonetheless, this is a tremendous piece that asks the question about whether it is better to be controlled in order to do no ill or to have the freedom to make one's own choices. This edition of the film is the one that we've long waited for. This is one of the few Kubrick films which were originally filmed in widescreen, and for the first time we can see the film as he intended it. Also, the picture and sound quality are as they've never been heard before. The Beethoven soundtrack resonates with sheer majesty and has never been so chilling. This is one of Kubrick's masterworks, and this is the way to see it.

A Remarkable Film; A Decent Transfer Posted by: from: Seattle, WA on Stanley Kubrick is often regarded as the greatest of all filmmakers for his consistent twist of genre. This film is breathtaking in more ways than one. It can be very offensive at times, but in those times it is also very theatrical. I would recommend this to anyone who hasn't seen it and to all who have and want a better transfer of it.

Shocking and funny Posted by: from: on Kubrick's followup to 2001: A Space Odyssey is also science fiction, but of a very different kind. A punk named Alex (played with wonderful black humor by Malcolm McDowell) has the time of his life violently taking advantage of other people with his 3 friends (or droogs, as he calls them), who eventually turn on him and leave him for the police, who later attempt to 'recondition' him. This experiment leads to Alex becoming susceptible to revenge from the society he terrorized. This is a violent picture which just happens to have a sharp sense of humor. The film was initially rated X (or NC-17 as the rating is known today). Although it was later reduced to an R rating, the violence still shook people up in 1971 (enough for the movie to be banned in the UK until after Kubrick's death) and it's still potent today. This is certainly not for the sensitive, but, as was commonplace for Kubrick's films, it is a unique experience for those willing to view it. The film certainly paved the way for movies such as Natural Born Killers and Minority Report.

Own the cult classic! Posted by: from: on A truly powerful, thought provoking and disturbing movie. The extras and special features are great, and this is a pretty good digital transfer of movie released 45 years ago.
