inside the mind



Not unexpectedly, Stanley Kubrick has directed a disturbing, confusing movie that explores a key psychological element in the human personality.

A Clockwork Orange takes an unflinching look at soulless violence, and the all-too-human attempt to find a way to prevent violent crimes and cure those who commit them.

The bizarre ultra-modern settings and clothes keep the violence at a safe distance, and most of it is explicit. When the main character, Alex, finally kills a woman in a violent assault, he's sent away by the prison system to be "reprogrammed" with aversion therapy.

The results appear to be just what the government wanted. But are they?
