A Clockwork Orange

A Clockwork Orange 1971, Stanley Kubrick

as a costume designer, i’m oozing with inspiration every time i’m watching this film. a bunch of “droogs” wearing tighty whities and masks, a bowler and a cane. lovely. a proper tribute to the English gentleman. Alex (Malcolm McDowell) is such an extreme character it fascinates me. i’m a little in love with that witty bad boy. a psychopath with child like eyes and an innocent look who adores Ludwig Van Beethoven. he is so utterly devoted to the female form. it so sexy. forbidden and yet so liberating. the film is drooling with violence. the kind of violence you wish would stay inside the T.V. screen. provocation with a strong British accent! it sounds superb to me and when it comes to films from the 1970’s, forget it! my sugary cup of tea. sip it with my pinky up!

  1. Great post 🙂 With the exception of Lolita (1962 version), Killer’s Kiss and Spartacus (which were all very good), every film by director Stanley Kubrick is a complete masterpiece. I would probably rank A Clockwork Orange as my fifth favorite Kubrick film of all-time. The first four numbers would be 2001: A Space Odyssey, Barry Lyndon, The Shining and Eyes Wide Shut 🙂 Anyway, keep up the great work as always 🙂

    1. Yep, he’s a genius, alright. Eyes Wide Shut is one of my favorite Kubrick films as well. I’m in love with the ritual scene with György Ligeti’s composed creepy music. I could watch it forever!
