“A monument of modern cinema”
The Independent

Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of Anthony Burgess’ decline-of-civilisation novel remains a chilling, thrilling and unsettling cinematic vision of nihilistic violence and social control. Set in a flamboyantly stylised near-future where gangs of disenfranchised teenagers indulge in narcotic cocktails and revel in acts of ‘ultraviolence’, the film centres on Alex (McDowell) and his band of droogs. Following a botched home invasion, Alex is arrested and subsequently sentenced to serve 14 years in prison. Two years later, Alex is visited by a government minister who offers him the opportunity to complete his rehabilitation in two weeks if he agrees to be subjected to the ‘Ludovico Technique’, an experimental and controversial form of aversion therapy.
