Stanley Kubrick’s epic dystopian crime adaption of A Clockwork Orange is certainly one of his most controversial. The violent, explicit & vulgar antics of Alex DeLarge and his gang of “droogs” was met with much critical anger and the film was forced to have major cuts before being released. In the U.K. Kubrick revived death threats and he removed the film from distribution. The film was based on a 1962 novel, by the same name, written by Anthony Burgess, but the film and book have a very different narrative.
