Stanley Kubrick's 1962 film Clockwork Orange is an adaptation of Anthony Burgess' 1962 literary work. Kubrick's work revolutionized the cinematic world, paving the way for many other works of fiction with socially critical dystopian narratives.
The story is set in a dystopian, cold and inhuman near future, and is filled with cruel youths, crimes, violent and disturbing images, discussions about the human mind, delinquency, gangs, and other social, political, and economic issues.
Alex is the young leader of a gang of troublemakers whose amusement is to commit perversities and acts of violence in the streets of the city, ruled by a repressive and totalitarian state. After his capture, the film narrates the criminal's attempt at rehabilitation through an experimental psychological conditioning technique, the Ludovico technique.
The film was a box-office success and became a cult classic for its themes involving delinquency, corrupt power structures, and the dehumanization of society, as well as its creative and striking visuals.
