Stanley Kubrick's death ended a career often misunderstood and always interesting. Of the many highlights, A Clockwork Orange, the director's dark realization of Anthony Burgess' novel, stands out. Alex (Malcolm McDowell) is a thug who, along with his band of menaces, terrorizes people as a hobby. Alex finally oversteps his bounds, gets caught and undergoes a fantastical rehabilitation. This is a frightening film for many reasons, the least of which is McDowell's chilling performance as the chief menace. On top of that, the director, his sets and locations have only a tenuous connection to reality. Kubrick offers juxtapositions throughout the film: Alex's attack on a couple while belting out "Singin' in the Rain" and the use of classical music under other scenes of ultra violence...
