There has been endless amounts of hate for this film and I’m struggling to understand why. This film is not just well made with some amazing cinematography that helps the film deliver its symbolic message. There’s also an amazing use of colour pallete, constantly using Blue and Red within the film to show the key themes love and war. But the the film delivers a great message through the story for example Guava Island is a metaphor for USA showing…
I was sceptical at first about watching this film due to it’s vintage status but after finally overcoming my doubts , I have now realised that I was very wrong. This film somehow addresses topics that are very relevant in today’s society even though it is 48 years old. Kubrick uses small elements throughout the film to create huge impacts on the viewer almost manipulating their thoughts and feeling. Looking at Stanley Kubrick’s Clockwork Orange it seems to have impacted cinema in the same way Ludwig Van Beethoven’s 9th symphony impacted music. Just like Beethoven’s 9th symphony this film can only be described as a masterpiece.
The film obviously lives up to the hype of being a Great Sci-Fi film.However I watched the Directors Cut and was told by one of my loyal followers that it built less tension than the original and there were a few points within the film that I thought could have been improved to create extra tension. I need to watch the original so that I can judge if the problems that I saw in the directors cut are fixed within the original.
