For the first time in a few years I rewatched A Clockwork Orange; writer/director Stanley Kubrick.

Just great great noire satirical comedy. I think I like it better than ever despite many things having changed since 1970 when the film was made -- e.g. the crazy fashions and aversion therapy. That durability is helps make so great. 4.5-5/5*

Finally saw the whole flick on video a year or so ago. Kubrick does have style I'll give him that. I thoroughly enjoyed the film. Just outside my Top 25. Question is... would/could it get made today?

Alright Worf. Please donít give studios ideas. We sure donít need another remake :D

I agree that Kubrick has a style that give movie a distinctive look and feel. Violence might be a bit over top in this film (like the water drowning scene), but it fit in well within content of this movie.

I have it on DVD and this is one of best looking DVD in my collection in term of picture quality.
