A Bridge

A Clockwork Orange, motion picture about a near future in which gangs of boys roam the streets of England in search of people to rob or rape, directed by Stanley Kubrick in 1971, based on the 1962 novel by Anthony Burgess. Alex (Malcolm McDowell), the teenage leader of one of those gangs, gets arrested for raping and killing a woman during a night of violent debauchery. In jail he is brainwashed so that ideas of sex and violence nauseate him, and he emerges a changed and vulnerable man. After a series of misadventures and another trip to jail, Alex returns to his amoral ways. This film is recognized for its innovative cinematography during the violent scenes and its vivid sets.
