A Clockwork Orange
6 years ago via Flixster

"There was me, that is Alex, and my three droogs, that is Pete, Georgie and Dim and we sat in the Korova milkbar trying to make up our rassoodocks what to do with the evening.? The Korova Milk Bar sold milkplus, milk plus vellocet or synthemesc or drencrom which is what we were drinking. This would sharpen you up and make you ready for a bit of the old ultra-violence"-Alex De LargeFlixster - Share MoviesDirector:Stanley KubrickCast:Malcom McDowell,Patrick Magee,Mihcael Bates,Warren ClarkGenre:Science Fiction,ThrillerYear of release:1971Running Time:136 minutesPlot:Alex, a teenage hooligan in a near-future Britain, gets jailed by the police. There he volunteers as guinea pig for a new aversion therapy proposed by the government to make room in prisons for political prisoners. "Cured" of his hooliganism and released, he is rejected by his friends and relatives. Eventually nearly dying, he becomes a major embarrassment for the government, who arrange to cure him of his cure. A pivotal moment is when he and his gang break into an author's home: the book he is writing (called "A Clockwork Orange") is a plea against the use of aversion therapy, on the grounds that it turns people into Clockwork Oranges (Orang is Malay for "Man"): they are not being good from choice (sentiments later echoed by the prison chaplain). The film reflects this: many bad scenes in a Clockwork Orange are accompanied by jolly music; if we are to experience them as we should, we have to do it consciously, by realising they are bad, and not because the director tells us so through the use of music and images. Review:I didn t know what to expect about A Clockwork Orange because it looked such a violent and disturbing movie that bothered me at the beggining but as a Stanley Kubrick,i decided to watch this movie on TV and boy,this movie is absolutely stunning and it blew me away big time.A Clockwork Orange is one of the most shocking,disturbing,contorversial and definetly brilliant films of all time,showing a shocking vision of a futuristic and dystopic Britain.I really enjoyed this movie and i knew that A Clockwork Orange is a stunning masterpiece.Flixster - Share MoviesMalcom McDowell delvers a stunning,disturbing but briilaint perfomance as Alex De Large.Alex is a young delinquent who loves to create havoc with his friends in the streets of Britain but he went too far when he accidentaly kills a woman with,well,a penis statue.He gets arrested and he is subimted into a behavior modification therapy that changes his personality and makes him a peacefull person but the modification will make a impact in his own life and existence.McDowell s perfomance is absolutely brilliant because he looks so damn scary but at the same time very vulnerable and realistic aswell.This is probably Malcom McDowell s most memorable and popular role yet.Stanley Kubrick is one of the greatest directors of all time and i have no shame to say that.Kubrick shows all his brilliance and talent no making this amazing movie.The camera work is definetly one of the bests i ver ever seen in a movie that makes a Clockwork Orange such a enjoyable movie.A Clockwork Orange is a stunning masterpiece and definetly Kubrick s most contorversial and shocking movie but is such a great movie and deserves the title of one of the greatest movies of all time.Masterpiece.

Plot:
Dom Cobb is a skilled thief, the absolute best in the dangerous art of extraction, stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state, when the mind is at its most vulnerable. Cobb's rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved. Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption. One last job could give him his life back but only if he can accomplish the impossible-inception. Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse: their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one. If they succeed, it could be the perfect crime. But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming.

Review:
After the massive success of The Dark Knight in 2008,everybody was wondering what would be Christopher Nolan s next project.The answer is Inception,a elaborated and yet complex thriller about the world of dreams.I was preety excited because after i saw the trailler,i said:"This looks good".Inception is such an original,mind-blowing and heartpounding movie experience that will grab you every second.Inception is another example of excellent cinema.

Leonardo DiCaprio delivers a fantastic perfomance as Dom Cobb,a expert in the art of extraction(stealing ideas from the dreams)who takes on more job to go home but the mission seems to become more complicated Cobb could predict ,specially with a enemy he would predict.DiCaprio proves once again to be one of the best actors of his generation and Inception is by far his best next to The Departed and Titanic.DiCaprio was well casted because we see a lot of him on Cobb.Ken Watanabe is such a wonderfull supporting actor with his great perfomance as Saito.Joseph Gordon-Levitt was fantastic as Arthur and man i was suprisded with Levitt.He s indeed one of the best actors of the film.Ellen Page was great as Ariadne,the youngest member of Cobb s group.It s great to see Ellen on the role since Juno.The rest was great including Tom"Bane"Hardy,Marion Cotillard and Cillian Murphy.

Christopher Nolan has done it again and delivers another masterpiece.Nolan s direction was truly masterfull and he did the same thing like The Dark Knight but much far.Nolan is indeed one of the most brilliant directors of all time and i m looking forward to his next projects.

Inception is such a brilliant and oustanding thriller and one of the best movies ever made.A wonderfull and brillliant blockbuster,Inception will continue to thrill you many years to come.
