A Clockwork Orange, 1971
Being the adventures of a young man, Alex, whose principal interests are rape, ultra-violence and Beethoven.
Anthony Burgess originally sold the movie rights to Mick Jagger for $500 when he needed quick cash. Jagger intended to make it with The Rolling Stones as the droogs, but then re-sold the rights for a much larger amount.
Tim Curry and Jeremy Irons turned down the role of Alex. Stanley Kubrick once said "If Malcolm McDowell hadn't been available I probably wouldn't have made the film."f
I can't imagine any other as Alex. While this is a strange movie and at times difficult to watch... I like it a lot.
Have you seen it? What do you think?
