A clockwork orange (La naranja mecánica)

de Stanley Kubrick



More than a synopsis or short opinion of one of the strangest films by one of the most renowned and complex directors in film history, we should offer a recommended bibliography here. Books, articles, or documentaries that could surely analyze much more in depth why A Clockwork Orange is a comprehensive thesis on violence in cinema. How Kubrick took Burgess’ novel about a young lover of ultra-violence and Beethoven to his own terrain. How this movie revolutionized cinema, but also its aesthetics in general. How it has been referred to ad nauseam by people as disparate as filmmaker Haneke or the group Blur. So read and see.


Stanley Kubrick

Meticulous and tremendously innovative filmmaker, he spans half of the 20th century with his cinema and revolutionized all types of genres with films like Killer’s Kiss (55), 2001: A Space Odyssey (68), The Shining (80) or, his last movie, Eyes Wide Shut (99).
