    "A Clockwork Orange is a true classic. Violent, graphic, shocking, and even more thought-provoking, this is a fantastic adaptation of a fantastic book. Malcolm McDowell is perfect in the protagonist's role, and skillfully makes the audience feel every emotion towards him, from revulsion to deep sympathy--just as the film requires. This might not be Kubrick's best but it's still a classic and a true must-see film."

    "Weird is not the best word to desciribe this movie. It's very violent, and not at all uplifting. I don't know about you, but I'm not all that interested in understanding violent thugs, or bringing myself down from watching this depressing stuff. And it turns out, it's based on a book, but the screenwriter didn't have the last chapter of the book! Sad."

    "This is one of the best Stanley Kubrick movies and also one of the best dystopias ever depicted in film. It's based on the book by Anthony Burgess and like the book its pretty disturbing. But not without reason. The movie digs deep into crime, punishment, and society. I won't say more for fear of giving something away. Just see it."

    "This movie is a classic that is worth revisiting. It's not my favorite Kubrick movie, but it is definitely a masterpiece of a study of the darker side of society. As usual for Kubrick, the scenes are almost dreamlike and flow from one disturbing element to another."

    "A Clockwork Orange is not really the same as Requiem for a Dream since they have different stories, but I think they can be considered similar since they are about the mind and they are both good interesting movies."

    "A Clockwork Orange is an unexpectedly deep film. It's mind-boggling and disturbing in a way that it will challenge your views and morals. The violence and nudity in the film are a little terrorizing as well."

    "A lot of movies have tried to give their take on psychopaths but A Clockwork Orange is especially dark and excessively violent. It won't be for everyone but it is something that you should see at least once."
