As time goes by, I'll always appreciate my Grade 10 English class (1984-85), taught by Mr. Terry. Looking back, it's probably the year that I was introduced to the most great literary works of all my life (especially 'Anthem' by Ayn Rand and 'Nausea' by Jean-Paul Sartre). Included that year in the course's curriculum was Anthony Burgess' dystopian masterwork, 'A Clockwork Orange' (as well as George Orwell's 'Animal Farm'--like Frank Sinatra would have said, 'It was a very good year'). I was mesmerized with it from the instant I noticed the unique approach to language, the 'ultraviolence' and of course, the eternal question of free will, its relationship to good-and-evil, and the can of worms of the myriad of ethical dilemmas that comes to the fore of individual freedom and rights versus that of society at large.

Accolto da polemiche e ovazioni al suo apparire, è stato sequestrato per molti anni in Francia, mentre in Gran Bretagna non può essere ancora proposto né al cinema né in videocassetta. L'ambiguità del personaggio era necessaria per mostrare le diverse violenze della medicina, della polizia, della politica e della gente comune. Quando Alex viene guarito, non può gestire le proprie scelte. Diventa docile non per volontà ma per allergia (sente nausea quando cerca di usare violenza, anche se cerca di difendersi). La più grande prova al cinema di Malcolm McDowell che ha ideato alcune scene storiche, tra cui quella dello stupro a tempo di I'm singing in the rain. Le musiche di Beethoven e Rossini rielaborate da Walter Carlos e le immagini...
