A Clockwork Orange

A Clockwork Orange ½

barely watchable. i was gonna rate it higher at least for the craft but it just gets worse and worse. going by a friend's words, the author of the book admitted there is no moral of the story or purpose and I can SEE that. it's just crimes displayed on screen and called art. i feel absolutely zero empathy and connection to anyone in this movie. it goes against my morals.

it fails as a piece of good media because men that are like ~evil~ in real life can watch this movie and think of themselves "well, i don't do THAT" and just carry on with whatever because we don't see the main character's behaviour near enough criticized. by the end we are supposed to feel sorry? should i? i don't!

the treatment of women though...I don't even want to start on that
