A brilliant nightmare... The film employs outrageous vulgarity, stark brutality and some sophisticated comedy to make an opaque argument for the preservation of respect for man's free will - even to do wrong.

Kubrick's liberal, anti-authoritarian reading of Anthony Burgess's very Catholic allegorical novel is morally confused but tremendously powerful... No serious moviegoer can afford to ignore it.

A thoroughly uneasy film to watch but it is brutally rewarding in it's themes and content. Deals with morality.

This is a classic to watch but definitely not everyone's cup of tea. Very strange.

My dad said it was an extremely bizarre film. He's somewhat right. It is bizarre at points. We watched it together one time (my first viewing and his second) and he got more out of it than the last he watched it and I got more out of it than I...

Fantastic movie, even better book
I read the book as a sophomore in high school, perhaps two years before seeing the movie. I would highly recommend both as, of course, they are particularly different experiences in approaching the subject matter. Kubrick masterfully unfolds the...

Really quite sad.
I felt so bad for Alex. They tried to rehabilitate him, but the world didn't want that; they wanted to see him punished. It was really sad toward the middle, but I felt the ending had some poetic justice.

I saw all of the reviews for this movie and expected it to be good, I tend to like a lot of 70s and 80s movies and surreal types of movies but this was just really bad. I don't really know why people think this film is so good. The first quarter...

Kubrick's masterpiece
This may be the film that started my love of film. I first saw this at age 13 on late night cable at a friend's house and was amazed by it. I snuck viewings as much as I could and eventually got around to reading the book and finding different...

So the book is better. Okay. That's a given. Maybe I just can't get over how awesome Stanley Kubrick is. I think I've seen every single one of the films he directed. They're all beautiful. Do I put too much stock in cinematography? As to the film's...

Good music and interesting cinematography, but not much else about this movie appealed to me. It's hard to say if the acting was any good since every character behaved so... oddly. The story, which focuses entirely on the character of Alex, played...
