A Clockwork Orange

Movie • 1971 • Drama  

Report
In a near-future Britain, young Alexander DeLarge and his pals get their kicks beating and raping anyone they please. When not destroying the lives of others, Alex swoons to the music of Beethoven. The state, eager to crack down on juvenile crime, gives an incarcerated Alex the option to undergo an invasive procedure that'll rob him of all personal agency. In a time when conscience is a commodity, can Alex change his tune?

Technically the main character is a child, but it depends which version or media you are using. In the novel, he is about fifteen, but in the movie he is supposedly older, possibly eighteen.

A woman's head is crushed using a large bludgeoning object slammed down on her open mouth. I would assume teeth are damaged in the process. The act itself is not shown on screen.

The main character is strapped down with his eyes forced open and is forced to watch what is on the screen in order to cure him of his violent actions. (Aversion Therapy)
There are a lot of electrodes attached to his head and it overall is a unpleasant scene of torture.

The one infamous scene in the book is mercifully changed to a consensual encounter with two girls in Alex's age group, but admittedly it doesn't take away from the fact that a teenage gang still gang r*pes an adult woman

The Droogs pretty much view all women as this. And to a lesser extent is somewhat male gaze-y in itself, to the point some might debate if we're supposed to enjoy these women being brutalized or not. The in-universe one is pretty undeniable though

The ending varies depending on the version of the book you are reading (USA vs UK version) and the film has a different ending. However, there is a negative overall tone in most versions.
