Kubrick paints a masterpiece of disturbing work in clockwork orange he creates this perfect dystopian world and NEVER backs away from that image. Everyone knows Clockwork is disturbing but there is a message it is conveying. Its always trying to show us what is good and what is respectful. In the start it shows a gang of violent uneducated uncivilized teenagers, doing what they want. This was framed to show there doing bad right? Then it moves on past the experiment and onto when he suddenly becomes good. Is Alex really good and recovered we really don't know. Alex doesn't harm or rape anymore but would he if he could? The second part of the movie was done in an unclear fashion I think to show do we really know whats good and bad. Kubrick tries to show in the start what bad is. But keeps an fog on Alex to show there really is a disputable area for right and wrong. I love almost everything about the movie and how it was done except for some parts where it becomes long or tedious example when he goes back to the authors house its length is over done. Other then that a brilliant piece by one of the best directors.
