Kubrick’s second sci-fi is a production smaller in scale than 2001 and it’s a social sciences-based story instead of physics that deals with humanity’s relationship with its own self as opposed to the cosmos. Adapted from Anthony Burgess’ novel, the film takes place in an anarchic future where gangs blow off steam by drinking milk spiked with all sorts of drugs after carelessly running rampant. It’s an unforgettable film notable for Malcolm McDowell’s terrific performance as violence-prone, unrepentant Alex, the blood-curdling conditioning treatment given by the government to reprogram people, and its pop-arty production design brimming with vibrant colors that burst on white surfaces.
This film contains scenes of sexuality/violence that might disturb some viewers.
