For those who love a good dystopia, Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange offers a futuristic, violence charged look at a highly regulated social order. Brilliantly adapted from Anthony Burgess’s notorious 1962 novel (with "Nadsat" street slang intact) the film follows teenage sociopath Alex (Malcolm McDowell) as he and his doped up gang of "droogs" brutally rob, rape, and murder across a bleak, futuristic London. Arrested and sent to prison, Alex is selected for aversion-therapy treatment to “cure” him of his sadistic impulses. Even after 45 years, the film visualizes a frightening and freakish view of dystopian society. Three screenings in September at Cinematheque.
