Many critics miss the mark with A Clockwork Orange. Some consider the film one that a) deals with the moral depravity of youth in their trends toward graphic societal violence, b) is some highly veiled attempt at New World Order conspiracy theory, or d) a simplistic glorification of violence. These critiques are not completely accurate. One needs look no further than deep down into the depths of their own internal self as A Clockwork Orange progresses on screen. Therein lay the true nature of the overarching significance of the message conveyed by this film. Kubrick taps into something that we are not readily able to admit.
What is that message? What is it that Kubrick so brilliantly and subtly touches within us?
