Stomping, whomping, stealing, singing, tap-dancing, violating. Derby-topped hooligan Alex (Malcolm McDowell) has a good time - at the tragic expense of others. His journey from amoral punk to brainwashed proper citizen and back again forms the dynamic arc of Stanley Kubrick's future-shock vision of Anthony Burgess' novel. Controversial when first released, A Clockwork Orange won New York Film Critics Best Picture and Director awards and earned four Oscar nominations, including Best Picture. Its power still entices, shocks and holds us in its grasp.

I am very happy with this purchase, especially for the price! The steelbook adds nicely to my collection. The steelbook looks nice. The transfer is good for a 44 year old film and it looked as if it could have been filmed 10 years later. Arrived withour any damage, thank you zavvi!
what else needs to be said about this movie? i could not do it better than has been said countless times before me. while this film may not be everyone's cup of tea, those that jump in will not be disappointed. as for the steelbook itself, it does not get much better than this. perfect cover/art selection, done well in every way!
the movie is good,the steelbook design is special,the directer is the master,but if the product have more protection is the best.
This is a difficult movie to watch. 43 years after it originally came out & A Clockwork Orange can be easily conceived as a test to your tolerance. Based on the book of the same name by Anthony Burgess, the story tells of a misfit gang on young thugs who practically go on a rampage throughout soceity and tear every fibre of order you can handle. With this movie having been directed by controversial director Stanley Kubrick, one can expect to see a movie just as controversial. Kubrick may ot always come across as the most understood movie maker of his time but something he said once to John Boorman, director of the Exorcist 2 kind of best explains his actions behind this movie. Nobody wants to see a movie that makes them feel good. In essence, this movie will not make you feel much other than shock, anger & a little disturbed. It is brutal, violent, demeaning to women & oddly watchable on a very crazy level. I cannot rate this a 5 star treatment despite many who will disagree with me, however i can also not deny that this was a daring movie for a daring director and so deserves at least a 4 star rating. Accompanied by a nice steelbook edition too.
super nice artwork on front and back and a fast delivery! As good as always :-)
A well made embossed matte steelbook. Fits perfectly with the other Kubrick steelbooks for The Shining and Full Metal Jacket. Worth every penny.
This is another wonderful steelbook from zavvi,a really great film from Stanley Kubrick who wasnt affraid to shock his audience.
After it's 1971 original release a clockwork orange was withdrawn from uk cinemas .... Unusually by its own director Stanley Kubrick as copycat gangs dressed as the droogs featured in the film were responsible for many acts of violence. Kubrick recieved death threats and pulled the plug on his own movie. After his death in the late 1990's Kubricks wife gave permission for the film to be released. The film itself is an absolute masterpiece . Funny, violent, weird and a movie that stands the test of time. Malcolm McDowell gives the performance of his career as Alex, leader of the droogs whose principle interest's are rape, ultra violence and Beethoven. This steelbook edition is a must have and has good extras. Get it before stocks run out. Zavvis best steel book release to date. Enjoy.
1st class movie in 1st class packaging
Only Stanley Kubrick can take a novel as controversial as A Clockwork Orange and make a modern masterpiece, and he did so brilliantly by making a beautifully shot dystopian thriller which works more as an analysis of modern society and our attitude towards crime. A great film with McDowells greatest performance as he sings, tap dances and rampages his way through the film. Chaos vs Order at its finest.
