Coming to Mondo Moxie this September, the Stanley Kubrick dystopian classic, A Clockwork Orange.

Summary: Kubrick makes of Anthony Burgess’ celebrated novel a savage and satiric morality play centering on Alex (McDowell), who fights, robs, rapes and kills like any concsienceless predator. Captured and imprisoned, he undergoes treatment to condition him “safe”, a “clockwork orange” healthy and whole on the outside - but crippled within by reflex mechanisms beyond his control. (Warner Bros.)

"It demands thought, compels the attention, and refuses to be dismissed. And, for that reason, A Clockwork Orange must be considered a landmark of modern cinema."
- James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"A chilling classic, the movie is a scabrous satire about human deviance, brutality, and social conditioning that has remained a visible part of the ongoing public debate about violence and the movies."
- Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
"Kubrick's liberal, anti-authoritarian reading of Anthony Burgess's very Catholic allegorical novel is morally confused but tremendously powerful... No serious moviegoer can afford to ignore it."
- Staff, TV Guide Magazine
"A brilliant nightmare... The film employs outrageous vulgarity, stark brutality and some sophisticated comedy to make an opaque argument for the preservation of respect for man's free will - even to do wrong."
- Staff, Variety
