A Clockwork Orange (1971)


Conspirator: Do you still feel suicidal?
Alex: Well, put it this way, I feel very low in myself. I can’t see much in the future, and I feel that any second something terrible is going to happen to me.

The opening to A Clockwork Orange is one of my favourite movie openings ever. Alex’s stare penetrates the viewer as we grow further… and further away from him and his Droogs.

Starring: Malcolm McDowell as Alex, Adrienne Corri as Mrs. Alexander, Warren Clarke as Dim and Patrick Magee as Mr. Alexander, dir. Stanley Kubrick.
