A Clockwork Orange (1971)

A Clockwork Orange (54:47)  This podcast is rated R for naughty language that will enter your bolshy gulliver.

Clockwork Orange, A

Our first ‘cast of 2015 is the last Stanley Kubrick Top 100 film! Malcolm McDowell wrings every drop out of his iconic character. Alex is one of the meanest “victims” ever put on film. We also get into off-point discussions about crime, punishment, morality and the greatness of Kubrick. Get down to it, then go over to our sponsor, Sparkplug Coffee!
