Anthony Burgess wrote the novel, as if crushed by his fate. His mother died when he had two years, the childhood of the writer criticized me, its first wife took to drink after she was raped by four soldiers in and the icing on the cake was the diagnosis of "brain tumor." He gave me a year, but he lived more than thirty and after the "sad news" I decided to do some writing. To himself "a Clockwork orange", written as time after diagnosis, the writer was not say that is positive. They say, as many have written, and people know only one of my book. Primitive creation.

Not was a Big Brother with the spacecraft. The future "a Clockwork orange" is available in the UK Soviet roots, so there say "moloko", "korova", "slovo" and the like. And in this world where is it possible to send ships in to space, but do not respect the law, there is Alex — a music lover with fake eyelashes who likes to drink moloko with friends to do acts of "ultramarine". At the end of one of such attacks Alex gets to prison subsequently sent to experimental treatment, according to the results of which are deprived of the opportunity to live the old life. Even it becomes impossible to enjoy listen to the symphonies of Beethoven, up to the extent that until suicide can be reached.

The main question that arises from the product — we do have to empathize with the main character? With one side — no, because Alex behaves like a rare bastard, and you see, when the most novels readers try on the image of the main characters on themselves, they can learn something. Here 15-year-old kid with his friends smashing shops, stealing cars, beating old men and seduces young girls. To identify with such characters desire does not arise. With other hand, it is runs the second half of the work, deprived of the opportunity to live in the old-fashioned, Alex is on the place of their victims, where he kicked all who do not too lazy, and trying to cause him the pain in order to improve their business. And I a society understand — the world needs bad men to keep those who is even worse. In fact, Alex — this anti-hero, on the nature of which we cannot say something for sure. This simultaneously repulsive and attractive image was well-implemented Malcolm McDowell, which the production felt sorry for himself. Broken ribs, a damaged respiratory system, at the time of filming the famous scene watching snuff films in "a medieval attitude of" the actor damaged his eyesight.

Very inspiring to me that style in which was directed by Stanley Kubrick. Flirting with color backgrounds, the contrast of the costumes, the music (the main theme is really heart-stopping) and focusing on the details. For example, the scene where Alex comes in prison room, and him guard indicates a white line defining the border. In the following scenes we see this strip, although the camera on her focuses the protagonist intentionally does not cross. Well, , plus was well illustrated the world around Alex. Parents don't really taken care of than their son, engaged in night, the bandits are cruel cops, and there was even a place of depravity (in the scene in the music shop look, girls lick ice cream as something special).

Evil is "a Clockwork orange" is that the picture did not seem sets you to a positive evaluation, but the hidden primitive instincts encourage you to watch the events on the screen. And after in conversations rise, philosophical questions begin to consolidate the picture of the status of provocateur. Of course, no negative impact on society the film is not done. Have four "white collar" began to appear imitators, renting in the UK was stopped, Yes, myself Burgess wanted to go away with a session in 10 minutes after the start. But the cult status of the film sold with a time and "a Clockwork orange" has withstood this test 146%.

Antisocial behavior, aggression, they are, but it difficult to say, not slipping into a trivial scuffle. Adolescent violence exists, but tell about it is true and not clumsy very difficult - we need non-trivial allegory, the grotesque need, we need the talent of the Director to make it together and make awesome movies.

On paper this story told by Burgess, on the film her suffered the infamous Kubrick. The main character - clever lad Alex, he alive allegorical representations of the absolute violence and extreme anti-social teenage behavior. The tendency to aggression - its a natural trait that only exacerbates the overall situation of totalitarian little world, which it exists, where violence to suppress even greater violence. But is there other ways? And how to squeeze out by forms the basis person?

The film is not trivial, it is cleared in an unusual manner, forcing the audience not stopping to look at, in General, atrocities, filed in a kind of grotesque manner, and Directors to podmahivat moves and new solutions.

About the Director Stanley Kubrick I heard a very long time and its movies, too, which many praise and worship. It is very interested in me and forced, finally, to see one of his famous works. So that first picture, by which I met the talent of the Director, was the Clockwork orange. frankly, I expect this movie is a bit different, something more pathetic and not devoid of sense, but anyway enjoy watching. Which inspired earlier not familiar thoughts meditation...

"A clockwork orange" is very unusual in their story. The film tells us about the time when young people became absolutely violent, more perverse and selfish. Four friends, four insane and unbelievable bully who do evil. all over the world. They can easily sneak in houses, plundering and iznasilo their inhabitants. But one of the protagonist, from the person whom the story is told, substitute their own comrades, and it gets in the hands of the authorities. Soon it send a correctional facility, and at a later time decide to take to hospital experiments on such as "sick" as a hero. After many unpleasant and even immoral procedures hero released on will. And he itrade recovered, but not to avoid serious consequences. When the hero sees scenes of violence, participates in or becomes a victim, he begins to feel sick, what happens at the sight of naked girls. All this makes a guy not just safe for her and just helpless. Now he can not defend themselves from these poor people, as he in the past. And it scares not only the hero, but the viewer.

Idea pattern is quite clear, the idea that the Director wanted to Express in the ribbon shown very beautifully and intelligently. This film shows us fictional, but not devoid shares of plausibility world where young Teens terrorizing the city streets, striking fear on innocent civilians. Heroes driven not crazy, but the phenomenal ego that makes them cruel and capable immoral. Kubrick showed us the device youth, and not only the past, but and current. The Director somehow managed to predict what could be the teenagers of the future, how they would treat adult these past, sustainable traditions. In the film, young people are not just not respects, but and puts itself above over the senior society. It describes heroes as negative characters. But the Director famously described and their weaknesses. The main character is afraid to cease to be a leader, he is afraid of justice. He ordinary man each of us who just think you are the king. But it inevitably befalls cruel punishment. And it is a punishment — his arms. And that violence, brutal, reckless, immoral violence that he used to enjoy. And now he became a victim. Friends became enemies, enemies — friends.

But in the finals paintings we still understand that the hero does not changed. He is not cured, he still the same a maniac, a pervert. And it's not even scary, not laugh, but just makes you wonder. To think about that youth has its own sustainable ideas about life, its meaning, about its pros and cons. And against this it is difficult to go.

In the film contains a lot of strange, abnormal and sometimes just the original characters, and so the actors were given quite a difficult job. But it all coped with no exceptions. The main advantage here is Malcolm McDowell, who played the main character. The actor plays very sincere, lively, enchanting. He has created a pathetic and eccentric way needsreview teenager. And his game makes the experience unforgettable. Its sly grin, his eyes... All this very impressive. Also, I like the inimitable, amazing game Patrick Magee, who performed the victim from the bullying of the youth of the writer. It character the fault of the ill adolescents had lost his wife, and he is disabled. And meeting with the abuser made him a vigilante with mental disorders. Patrick plays a frighteningly believable and very dramatic.

9 10

"A clockwork orange" — is a fine picture showing us all the nuances of modern youth: a cruel, selfish, reckless. The picture is devoid of stereotypes, devoid of complexes, and it is wonderfully clear. Several unusual visual techniques and Director's findings make it very original and unique. This can be removed only by Kubrick.

PS And that the ribbon is a beautiful confirmation of the fact that the Director is partial to the shots of naked female bodies.
