Disturbing, dystopian, confrontational and thought-provoking, there is no denying the power of Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange. In an England of the future, Alex (Malcolm McDowell) and his ‘Droogs’ spend their nights getting high at the Korova Milkbar before embarking on ‘a little of the old ultraviolence’, while jauntily warbling ‘Singin' in the Rain'. After he's jailed, Alex submits to behaviour modification technique to earn his freedom; he's conditioned to abhor violence. Returned to the world defenceless, Alex becomes the victim of his prior victims.
