Review: Stanley Kubrick's Clockwork Orange

User Review  - Charlie - A Reading Machine - Goodreads

Read this because the movie was such a groundbreaker. Not easy to read. The language and dialogue is intense and hard work with lots of slang and completely made up words peppering every sentence ... Read full review

About the author (2000)

Stanley Kubrick was born in the Bronx, New York, and became a skilled photographer before he went into directing. He achieved fame with the fine antiwar film Paths of Glory in 1957, and his output since then has been extremely diversified. Through it all, however, runs a deep vein of pessimism. Dr. Strangelove (1964), 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), and A Clockwork Orange (1972) express his vision of an apocalyptic future, while Spartacus (1959) and Barry Lyndon (1975) reveal his dark view of futility in the past. Kubrick has been able to work independently for most of his career, enjoying the rare right to make the final cuts of his films without studio interference. Some of his other notable films are Lolita (1954), based on Vladimir Nabokov's novel, and Full Metal Jacket (1987), about troops in the Vietnam War.

Anthony Burgess is the author of many works, including The Long Day Wanes, The Wanting Seed, The Doctor Is Sick, Nothing Like the Sun, Honey for the Bears, and Re Joyce.
