A Clockwork Orange

‘A Clockwork Orange’ is Still Raising Important Questions 50 Years Later. Nearly five decades after its release, Stanley Kubrick’s infamous film is examining themes of morality, justice and free will that are even more relevant today. “A Clockwork Orange” centers around a sociopathic teenager named Alex (played by Malcolm McDowell), who leads a small gang of neighborhood friends that he refers to as his “droogs.” Together, they spend their time skipping school and causing mischief. For those who’ve never seen the film, this seems like a description of typical teenage misadventures. But aside from playing hooky, Alex and his droogs enjoy themselves by robbing and raping anyone they see fit, which ultimately leads to the death of a woman and lands Alex in prison. Anthony Burgess, the author of the novel, is said to have coined the title from a Cockney phrase used to describe something that appears normal on the surface but is internally odd or bizarre. The phrase “as queer as a clockwork orange” may seem like an odd choice to derive a title from, but it is, in fact, a fitting encapsulation of the film’s central theme.
