A Clockwork Orange Reviews

January 29, 2016
A mind shattering experience with its exaggerated violence and outrageous vulgarity.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
February 6, 2013
A painless, bloodless, and ultimately pointless futuristic fantasy.
January 18, 2013
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4

A merciless, demoniac satire in the future imperfect.
May 8, 2007
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.
May 8, 2007
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.

February 9, 2006
A sexless, inhuman film, whose power derives from a ruthless subordination of its content to the demands of telling a good story.
October 23, 2004
A Clockwork Orange is an ideological mess, a paranoid right-wing fantasy masquerading as an Orwellian warning.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
January 1, 2000
At once [Kubrick's] most thematically problematic film and his most unforgettably sensational.
January 1, 2000
A most unusual -- and disorienting -- movie experience.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
January 1, 2000
It demands thought, compels the attention, and refuses to be dismissed.
