I love this movie (and book) with my whole heart and soul, it portrays violence as something immature, it’s got the whole “if these are the good guys I’m glad I’m bad” thing going on, it makes the viewer feel sympathy for a devil, but it’s sympathy for a child as well. I think I prefer Burgess’s ending over the Kubrickian one though, though they both show that Alex is still immature (“I’m cured I can go back to violence” vs “violence is boring now and I’m gonna stop NOT because I think it’s bad but because I’m bored and my friend seems happy”). We don’t talk about the musical ending lmao

IMO the people who think it’s glorification of violence are of shallow minds and puritanical persuasion, but those that glorify it are just as dumb. It’s about free will buddy. That being said I have gotten off to this before.

Overall 9/10 amazing movie McDowell was my bi awakening, Deltoid is my favourite movie performance ever I think, 100% recommend you watch it crossfaded or on mescal

I can’t not mention the soundtrack it’s incredible I have it on vinyl it’s orgasmic

Trust me on this one.
This is a must watch for every movie lover in general.
A little of the old ultraviolence always does the job.

Never understood the big deal about this movie- as I have seen and have in my collection many more and much fuc*** up gore sexploitation movies, saying this I am so pleased to have discovered this website and learn that I am not the only one who appreciates the good fuc*** up gore sexploitation…

Sitting in a college theater filled with people who had no need/awareness to fear it’s portent, next to a woman and her two children (who walked out after the first quasi-rape), on whiskey and weed was quite the experience – watching people pretend to swim in the abyss can be almost as much fun as the real deal – Kubrick might have hated me but I love his stains

An absolute classic which I think spawned a lot of future films of this type, but there is nothing like the original. Great performances and good soundtrack, especially the opening track. Very controversial in its day, particularly the rape scene which is mild by todays standard, but it still remains an all time great movie. 10/10.
