"Being the adventures of a young man ... who couldn't resist pretty girls ... or a bit of the old ultraviolence ... went to jail, was re-conditioned ... and came out a different young man ... or was he?"

In the performance of his career Malcolm McDowell is Alex, a charismatic delinquent of pure Id whose malevolence is matched only by his sense of aesthetics, particularly music. But the character of Alex is really a device used to drive home the film?s theme, that the greater evil is the eradication of a person's ability to make their own moral choices. The audience is put into the position of identifying with Alex's humanity even as they are repulsed by his actions; the ways in which Kubrick accomplishes this makes this film worth seeing again and again. (Stanley Kubrick; UK; 1971; 136 min)

Part three of three in the March Sunday Night Series ? Teen Angst: J. D. Salinger's Imprint on Film.
