A Clockwork Orange Reviews

A painless, bloodless, and ultimately pointless futuristic fantasy.

Kubrick's contributions are his wit and his eye. The wit, too much at times, is as biting as in Dr. Strangelove, and the production, while of another order, is as spectacular as in 2001.

A violent meditation on violence. Not for kids.

A merciless, demoniac satire in the future imperfect.

Producer-director Stanley Kubrick's adaptation of the Anthony Burgess novel is a strangely overwhelming experience %u2013 at time contemptible, and yet always valid in its sardonic outlook.

EmanuelLevy.Com

Ambitious and stylized (perhaps to a fault), Kubrick's poignantly prophetic satire of crime and punishment, redemption and free will, is still much misunderstood by critics emphasizing its ultra-violence.

All of Kubricks films have generated controversy, but this one engendered outright hostility.

Film4

Directed with assurance and filled with the cynicism, paranoia, visual flair (and lurid titillation) that characterised so much of his work, this is vintage Kubrick and classic cinema.

Remains as unsettling and shocking today as the day it was released.

Who else but Stanley Kubrick could successfully direct an ultra-stylish, sci-fi cult film about the impossibility of redemption in the absence of freely willed sin?

Stanley Kubrick's latest film takes the heavy realities of the 'do-your-thing' and 'law-and-order' syndromes, runs them through a cinematic centrifuge, and spews forth the commingled comic horrors of a regulated society.

A very bad film -- snide, barely competent, and overdrawn -- that enjoys a perennial popularity, perhaps because its confused moral position appeals to the secret Nietzscheans within us.

Ice cold, indecent, and way too obvious to be in any way deep.

A sexless, inhuman film, whose power derives from a ruthless subordination of its content to the demands of telling a good story.

May be Kubrick's greatest film, for its lasting influence and social significance.

A Clockwork Orange is an ideological mess, a paranoid right-wing fantasy masquerading as an Orwellian warning.
