All right guys, this is the moment you've all been waiting for. The director of the week is finally....Stanley Kubrick! Stan the Man. :-) All right, now for the film of the week. It is A Clockwork Orange. Man oh man do I have a lot to say. Sooooo, to those of you who don't know, Stanley Kubrick is a film genius. Just had to let you know first. Okay, so A Clockwork Orange (the film by Kubrick) was adapted from A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess (the book). The film is spectacularly filmed and I really really love it. It's pretty messed up and quite disturbing but film wise, Stanley Kubrick did a phenomenal job, honestly. The film is about the main character, Alex, who is a pretty messed up guy haha and him and his hooligan friends beat up old people and rape and just do awful awful things. Alex finally takes it too far and bludgeons a woman, the Cat Lady, to death and he gets put in prison. His partners in crime, haha, ran away at the arrest and were therefore not caught and are innocent. Two even became cops, haha, how ironic. Alex, in jail, is pretty miserable and finds out that there is an easy way out of jail early. Little does he know the future pain he'll have to endure later on. I guess that's enough of a summary. You really should check this film out! As well as other Stanley Kubrick films. He is soooooo good. SO good. You will not be sorry.
