A Clockwork Orange
1971
*****
Director: Stanley Kubrick
Cast: Malcolm McDowell, Patrick Magee, Michael Bates, Warren Clarke

Young Alex and his gang terrorise the neighbourhood until he is arrested for murder and subjected to a new treatment which is to cure him of any criminal urges. Kubrick’s chilly and cynical dystopia is based on Anthony Burgess’ novel. The unique visual look, perfect soundtrack and thought-provoking subject matter contribute to one of Kubrick’s most endurable films. Malcolm McDowell is awesome in the lead.
