A Kubrick Classic
Stanley Kubrick did the movie The Shining in the early 80's, and at the time, I did not like the movie. The reason I didn't like the movie was because I had read the book, and many things were different, examples of this being the ending and the maze instead of the animal shaped shrubbery. With the release of Stephen King's The Shining, I actually liked that version compared to Stanley Kubrick's version. As time as passed though, I have rewatched the Stanley Kubrick version and have taken more of an appreciation to what he did with that film, especially with what he did with the camera work. I don't like it better than the Stephen King version (actually I like it about the same), I just think it's different. Same thing happened for me with A Clockwork Orange. When I initially saw the film, I hated it. I thought it was weird and I just wanted the movie to get over with. I've also rewatched this movie several times since then, and I have a different take on the movie than when I was younger. Set in the future sometime from the 70's (when the film was made), A Clockwork Orange is about a guy named Alex (played by Malcolm McDowell) who, along with his gang of "droogs", goes around committing acts of violence with no care for anyone else and no remorse for his actions. Among these acts of "ultra-violence" (a term I've never heard before or since) are beating up on old drunks and raping women. Alex eventually gets caught when he attacks a woman who has called the police while he is breaking into her home. Upon realizing that the police are coming, Alex hurries outside only to have his cronies turn on him, by smashing a milk bottle over his head and leaving him helpless. This movie then takes a turn, as Alex is charged with murder (even though he didn't realize that the woman had died). He then claims he doesn't know right from wrong and agrees to take controversial experimental treatment to change his ways. Unable to do evil things anymore, Alex is let back into the world a free man. Things then get really tough for him, as bad things begin to happen to him. A Clockwork Orange is a strange movie, but I really like the way that Stanley Kubrick has used a lot of irony. The viewer doesn't know who to cheer for really because even though Alex is so evil, Kubrick actually makes him look like a victim later in the film. So you don't know if Alex is actually a hero, victim, or villain. The ending kind of leaves you going "What the...?", but it's also kind of a fitting ending for the type of film that it is. It's truly an imaginative and original story that can make for interesting conversation (I've talked with other who like the irony of the violence and reform, and others who just simply hate the movie). I think this movie is a classic and should be viewed by pretty much everyone at least once (young viewers not included, it was initially rated X when it first came out for the rape scenes). But since many people I know actually hate this movie (not nearly as many who love it though), I recommend renting it first before you decide to own it.
Vidi well, brother. Vidi well...*
I bought A Clockwork Orange (1991, VHS) because it is rarely rentable, intact, because of its availability on eBay and because it is one of the best statements about modern 'Civilized’ behavior ever made. It speaks on a par with Orwell's '1984' about the blurry line between the good guys and the bad guys, the saints and sinners; or as the lady at the 'health farm’ puts it, the "little bastards" and the "real people." The film pulls no punches. It relentlessly pursues the viewer around their own most deeply held paradigms and punches them into submission; and all to some of the most beautiful music ever written by anyone. There is no safe place to hide and no "higher ground" from which to make judgments. You stick your tongue out and lick the crust from the sole of your tormentor’s boot, or you take sides for or against some misty ideal of conformity and "acceptable behavior." For some vague reason deeply sequestered in some dusty vault of my soul, I liked it immensely; enough to feel that owning it would be a grand idea. I was right. -deac
This film takes a perfect look at overt correctness. Not to mention, it deals with how far people would go to get it. Granted, Alex wasn't a peach (He's not really supposed to be viewed as sympathetic. The in-universe equivalent of that trope gets played in the scene when he begs for someone to give him mercy in spite of all the crimes he's committed and how he volunteered for the treatment in order to be let out early. Not to mention, the book this movie is based on is written from his POV.). However, the Ludivico treatment ends up doing more harm to him than good. Especially when it comes to self-defense. Then, there is the fish-eye lens it takes. It has several strawmen and even one in the form of the minister of the prison, who views the treatment as counterproductive and gets glared at in response. It's no wonder this film is viewed as a classic.

Just as expected
Tape and case are both in great shape. I have always loved this movie. As a collector of VHS movies, this was a very welcome addition. Very happy to have it on my shelf. Movie plays great, no distortion. Just like new. Thanks again!

a clockwork orange
this is a classic. truely shows the baser side of the human animal. can one even state that the "cure" was really any better? extremes and extremists and humans can't get much stranger, unless there is alot of 'truth' and/or 'real life experiences' used. a posterboard for moderation and moderationists. shows what we can expect in the future. give anyone power and they all go mad.
