Throwback Thursday: A Clockwork Orange

giphy

In an England of the future, Alex (Malcolm McDowell) and his “Droogs” spend their nights getting high at the Korova Milkbar before embarking on “a little of the old ultraviolence,” while jauntily warbling “Singin’ in the Rain.” After he’s jailed for bludgeoning the Cat Lady to death, Alex submits to behavior modification technique to earn his freedom; he’s conditioned to abhor violence. Returned to the world defenseless, Alex becomes the victim of his prior victims. 

This movie is sick, twisted, dark, and not everyone’s cup of tea; kind of like me.  However, it is worth the watch and the book is just as good. Although, if I remember correctly, the author wrote it not to be taken too seriously.

Check out the trailer below and re-watch or watch a personal dark favorite of mine. It’ll have you singing in the rain!
