Ultra-violent and charismatic, Alex (Malcolm McDowell) leads a gang of juvenile delinquents causing chaos on the streets of futuristic London. But when one of their misdeeds goes wrong and Alex falls into the hands of the police, he becomes a guinea pig in a series of psychological experiments designed to rid the nation’s young men of their criminal impulses. Incredibly controversial in its time and now considered one of Stanley Kubrick’s most audacious works, A Clockwork Orange is a dazzling dystopian tale filled with pitch-black humour and a chilling core of social commentary.
