A Clockwork Orange

A Clockwork Orange DVD - Just The Good Stuff A Clockwork Orange ranked # 46 on the American Film Institute's Top 100 American Films list.

A Clockwork Orange (1971) is a film directed and produced by Stanley Kubrick based on the novel of the same name by Anthony Burgess. The film stars Malcolm McDowell as charismatic delinquent Alex DeLarge, and features a soundtrack by Wendy Carlos.

Set a few years in the future, the film follows the career of a teenager named Alex whose main pleasures in life are classical music (especially Beethoven), rape, and random acts of 'ultraviolence'. Alex tells his story in a teenage slang called 'Nadsat', which mixes Russian with English.

One of the central moral questions of the film, as well as many of Burgess' other books, is the definition of "goodness". Once he has undergone the aversion therapy, Alex behaves like a good member of society, but not through choice; his "goodness" is as artificial as the clockwork orange of the title. In one scene, the prison chaplain criticizes the therapy, saying that true goodness has to come from within.

It came in at number 21 on AFI's 100 Years... 100 Thrills and number 46 on AFI's 100 Years... 100 Movies.
