Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


This is one of the strangest films in film history and one of the most famous Forbidden films. Since it came out, it has not only attracted controversial discussions, but also the scenes of violence have been imitated by many teenagers. For this reason, it has been banned in many countries. For example, in Britain, it has been banned for nearly 30 years – it was not able to meet the British audience until the death of director Kubrick.

In addition to violence, the film is also related to “brainwashing” – in the western world, “brainwashing” seems to be the most frightening topic, even more frightening than abnormal killers, because “brainwashing” means the complete elimination of personality and the complete interference in personal freedom. There are many classic works in the history of film that show the horror of this topic, the most famous one is leap over the madhouse. This “clockwork orange” puts this question under an extreme situation: even if the object is a shameless and degenerate hooligan, should he safeguard his right of free choice? As the priest in the film said, no one has the right to deprive others of their “ability to make the right choice”?

When American director Kubrick finished reading the novel clockwork orange by British writer Anthony Burgess, he tried his best to persuade Warner film company to buy its copyright for $200000 in 1969. Then he started shooting the film clockwork orange with a budget of only $2 million. In the shooting of this film, Kubrick learned from many documentary shooting techniques, including live radio, using only natural light illumination, and using wheelchairs to create bumpy effects when shooting tracking shots.

“Clockwork orange” was rated as an X-rated film by the U.S. film review board because of its violence and sexual performance. And so it became the second Oscar nominated x-rated film after midnight cowboy. A year after the film was released, Kubrick cut out the 30 second lens in the film before changing the rating of clockwork orange to R. The release of clockwork orange in Britain was more difficult than in the United States. It was blamed for several murders and violence. So Kubrick asked Warner to stop the release of clockwork orange in Britain. Britain then banned the film from domestic release until 2000.

Film critics in New York rated “clockwork orange” as the best film of the year in the United States in 1971, while Kubrick was the best director of the year. It also won Oscar nominations for best picture, best director, best adapted screenplay and best film editing.

At the beginning of the film, there is a close-up of a face. It seems to be smiling, but the smile is evil and distorted. It seems to be appreciating itself. Then the camera slowly pulls away, close range, medium range and panorama. We can see that the surreal interior decoration is filled with the smell of sex and drugs. This almost Dali dream scene is like Freud’s ID paradise. Like other typical scene settings in the film, it has a strong surreal style, strange furnishings, strong colors and full of sexual hints

The story takes place in the future society. Led by Alex, several young people full of violence began to have fun everywhere after drinking human milk that is said to contain drugs. First, they beat up a tramp on the street, and then they found a group of hooligans who wanted to rape a girl and fought for personal resentment. Kubrick showed the fierce battle between the two sides in slow motion, with tables and chairs dancing and broken glass in the sound of music, That can indeed be called “Violence Aesthetics” (compared with this “violence slow shot”, what is also impressive is the subsequent “sex fast shot”: Alex takes two girls’ prey home for promiscuity, and kublik uses fast shots to show the whole sexual process).

After a fierce battle, Alex and his accomplices drove at a high speed and retrograded wantonly on the road. In an apartment in the suburbs, Alex borrowed a phone from the head of household writer Alexander and his wife on the grounds of a traffic accident. When the door opened, they rushed into the house wearing masks, beat the writer, and gang raped his wife in front of the writer

The next day, Alex beat up his unfaithful men and established his position as boss. In the evening, they prepared to enter the rich woman’s “Mrs. cat” home in the same way. Unexpectedly, Mrs. cat had been on guard for a long time. She not only didn’t open the door, but also called the police after Alex left. Alex accidentally killed Mrs. cat. When he hurriedly escaped from Mrs. cat’s apartment, he was knocked unconscious on the spot by his men who wanted to revenge, and finally arrested by the police. Alex was sentenced to 14 years in prison for murder.

Probably because there were too many vicious young people like Alex at that time, prison resources were extremely tight. In order to alleviate this problem and reduce social evils, the government at that time adopted an experimental treatment measure for these young people. The method is very simple: after injecting certain drugs into the “experimental object”, enlarge and pressurize some extremely cruel and bloody criminal events by means of personal movies, and keep showing them to the “experimental object”. Under the action of drugs, the original desire and body of the “experimental product” refer to different directions. The innate pleasure and nausea of drugs make their bodies at a loss. This unbearable split state will effectively and strongly inhibit all the evil desires of the “experimental product”

Alex, who didn’t know the details, volunteered to serve as the “experimental object” of the government’s new experiment. The experiment was very successful. After the experiment, Alex, as the government wished, became a “new man” who could not fight back, scold back, have no sexual desire and would never harm the society

Anthony Burgess, the author of the original novel, once said when explaining his point of view: “the complete good is as inhuman as the complete evil. The important thing is the right of moral choice.” Alex, who is engaged in devil like evil activities, lives in this complete good and complete evil. His appearance is organic and seems to have the color and juice of love. In fact, he is just a clockwork toy. And the terrible God or devil, as well as the increasingly perfect state machines that play a greater role than them, never stop their hands controlling everything. They quietly wind up the clockwork toys in the dark and watch these toys embark on the road of self destruction

Kubrick raised a question in this film about future social thinking, which deliberately hides the characteristics of the times: can people still choose their own behavior according to their will in the future social system and in the process of high development of science and technology? Or as a “clockwork orange” at the disposal of others without their own ideas? Or how do people maintain their free will in the social system—— Kubrick’s question seems to have no answer.
