A Clockwork Orange
This is one messed up film. I mean really, truly twisted in a "oh my goodness I can't believe what I'm see and hearing right now" way. It's probably the first masterpiece that I don't think I could really recommend to someone... The violence is so over the top and disturbing.
Yet it did win me over by the end. The bombastic use of visuals and Ludwig Van music and ridiculous voice overs is total artistic genius, and the story and message are both quite interesting and compelling. So, while I won't recommend it, I will say that it's a shock to the system, but I'm glad I saw this film in the end.
3 out of 4
