Episode 554: A Clockwork Orange (1971)

Special Guests: Mike Kaplan, Andrew Biswell
Guest Co-Hosts: Rob St. Mary, Yaniv Eidelstein

We kick off 2022 with a look at Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange (1971). Based on the 1962 book by , the film stars Malcolm McDowell as Alex DeLarge, a teenager in the squalor of a futuristic London town where there ain’t no law & order. He’s a juvenile delinquent who eventually gets pinched for his crimes. While in prison he undergoes an experimental treatment that removes his free will but puts him on the straight and narrow only to find that all those he stepped on on his path to incarceration remember him... and not too fondly.

Your friend and faithful narrator comes to you with gorgeousness and gorgeousity made digital with my droogs, Rob St. Mary and Yaniv Eidelstein. Meanwhile, our guests include publicist Mike Kaplan and Anthony Burgess biographer Andrew Biswell.

  1. Great episode! I also recommend checking out "Funeral Parade of Roses," a 1969 japanese film about the life of several trans men and women in Tokyo. Kubrick cited this film as an inspiration for some of the visuals in A Clockwork Orange.
