A genuine masterpiece. Kubrick, once again, assures the world how genius he is.

9.75 out of 10

Need to re-watch this.
Watched it at a young age, and most likely didn't understand it.

It's one of my favourite films. The soundtrack is excellent, especially for the time. Obviously the special effects don't hold up too well - the driving scene(s) in particular - but I saw it recently on Blu-ray and the overall quality is excellent.

I watched this as a kid and could not comprehend what what was going on. After watching it again it really is a great flick. Though I would love to see a remake of this done for more modern take.

A Clockwork Apple?

A young man who's principle interests are over priced gadgets, internet trolling and dubstep?

No thanks.

One of my favorite films ever, I even have the original soundtrack on Vinyl in my collection. Just a true masterpiece of visuals and sounds to create a truly disturbing, yet completely engulfing, experience.

I really may watch it today.

I never understood it, so I don't rate it high.

At it's simplest I believe it is about how people are a result of their environments and conditioning from said environments. Alex happens to be an ultra-violent sex-crazed deviant because of his environment.

It is also about people trying to change who they are.

Definitely one of those movies that people either love it or hate it.

Interesting enough I have read that the English version and American version of the original book actually had two different endings. With the American version being the less positive of the two.

Easily one of the three most important films in history.

Bergman's The 7th Seal and another Kubrick: 2001, Space Oddisey.

I have also read the book with the English ending (which is just an extension on the American ending). A Clockwork Orange used to be one of my favorite films until I read the novel.

Don't get me wrong, the cinematography and score are beautiful. Although after reading the book the actor's characters are very hallow and lack depth that is portrayed in the book.

And I felt the English ending would have been amazing for the film, completing the 'coming of age' theme.

Typical film student answer.

Meanwhile neither the world or the movie world would have been very different if at all hasn't these movies existed.

Strange, Im not a film student.

And of course there is no way to determine your convenient answer.
