Other Movies Seen By This Director (1)
- A Clockwork Orange
|06.12.06||Paramount|| This movie slipped through the cracks when I was seeing all the Kubrick movies for the first time... something about hearing that it sucked/was misunderstood/censored (depending on who I heard it from) and not wanting to sit through another Barry Lyndon. I should've seen it sooner though because it's pretty good, especially the first hour or so. After Shelley Winters leaves the movie it goes downhill somewhat for me but in the scenes she plays with James Mason they are both freakin hilarious. Of course Sellers is funny every second he's on screen but the real surprise for me was Mason of whom I'm a borderline fan. He did a really good job here... impressed me. Otherwise, I think people tend to get caught up in the controversy and Sue Lyon's age and overlook the fact that this movie is actually funny. And not like how Baby Doll is supposed to be a comedy maybe like On The Waterfront or A Streetcar Named Desire is funny but a comedy as in it makes you laugh. Still though, it feels like a real movie made by a human being... perhaps the last movie Kubrick made before he was alien probed into the genius culture-expanding introvert that created his next half dozen pictures.|
oh, as I was driving home I passed a Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey train, complete with stock cars for the animals. It was awesome.
