“No time for the old in-n-out, love, I’ve just come to read the meter.”

Based on Anthony Burgess’s disturbing novel about England in the totalitarian future, director Stanley Kubrick‘s A CLOCKWORK ORANGE stars Malcolm McDowell as Alex, a Beethoven-loving, head-bashing punk who leads his gang of droogs on ultra-violent assaults–until he is captured by authorities and subjected to nasty behavior-modification therapy.

“Kubrick’s contributions are his wit and his eye. The wit, too much at times, is as biting as in Dr. Strangelove, and the production, while of another order, is as spectacular as in 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY.” (Gene Siskel)

A CLOCKWORK ORANGE (Stanley Kubrick, 136 mins / 1971 / 18A) | In future Britain, charismatic delinquent Alex DeLarge is jailed and volunteers for an experimental aversion therapy developed by the government in an effort to solve society’s crime problem – but not all goes according to plan.

2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY (Stanley Kubrick, 1968 / 149 mins / G) | An imposing black structure provides a connection between the past and the future in this enigmatic adaptation of a short story by revered sci-fi author Arthur C. Clarke. When Dr. Dave Bowman (Keir Dullea) and other astronauts are sent on a mysterious mission, their ship’s computer system, HAL, begins to display increasingly strange behavior, leading up to a tense showdown between man and machine that results in a mind-bending trek through space and time.
