backtrack; A clockwork orange (1971)

The »ultra-violence« is more or less dated, the psychology rather shallow, and the story a tad simplistic. But the innovative use of language, the futuristic shabby chic visuals, and the forced change of perspectives – threatening perpetrators becoming abused victims and vice versa – still makes this a strong, lasting and wortwhile science fiction experience.

A very bleak morality set in a cold, dark and polarized Britain. In my most dystopian book.

Clockwork

  1. Since I consider Singin’ in the Rain the most terrifying song of all time, I guess you could say this film had some impact on me.

    I’ve read somewhere that the singing wasn’t in the script.
