A Clockwork Orange is an ingenious social satire about a frightening future that has already become the present. Stanley Kubrick’s film, considered to be a spectacular masterpiece and a milestone in film history, involves the absurd and grotesque narration of an exciting and inventive story that, almost 40 years on, has not lost any of its explosiveness, posingfundamental questions concerning morals and politics. The film revolves around Alex (Malcolm McDowell), who fights, robs, rapes and murders like a predator without a conscience. Alex is arrested and imprisoned. He undergoes a cruel rehabilitation process that is supposed to make him “socially acceptable” again; functioning like a “clockwork Orange”.
