Let it charge a little this post contains some gifs
So lets start
A Clockwork Orange is a 1971 film adaptation of Anthony Burgess's 1962 novel of the same name. It was written, directed and produced by Stanley Kubrick. It features disturbing, violent images, facilitating its social commentary on psychiatry, youth gangs, and other social, political, and economic subjects in a dystopian, future Britain.
Alex, the main character, is a charismatic, sociopathic delinquent whose interests include classical music (especially Beethoven), rape, and what is termed "ultra-violence". He leads a small gang of thugs (Pete, Georgie, and Dim), whom he calls his droogs (from the Russian друг, "friend", "buddy" ). The film chronicles the horrific crime spree of his gang, his capture, and attempted rehabilitation via controversial psychological conditioning. Alex narrates most of the film in Nadsat, a fractured adolescent slang comprising Slavic (especially Russian), English, and Cockney rhyming slang.
In futuristic London, Alex is the leader of his "droogs," Pete, Georgie, and Dim, one of many youth gangs in the decaying metropolis.
One night, after intoxicating themselves on "milk plus," they engage in an evening of "ultra-violence," including beating an elderly vagrant.
And fighting a rival gang led by Billyboy
Stealing a car, they drive to the country home of writer F. Alexander
where they beat Mr. Alexander to the point of crippling him for life. Alex then rapes his wife while intoning "Singin' in the Rain".
The next day, while truant from school, Alex is approached by probation officer Mr. P. R. Deltoid, who is aware of Alex's violence and cautions him.
After the events of the night before, his droogs express discontent with Alex's petty crimes, demanding more equality and more high-yield thefts.
Alex reasserts his leadership by attacking them and throwing them into a canal.
That night, Alex invades the mansion of a wealthy woman. While his droogs remain at the front door, Alex bludgeons the woman with a phallic statue. Hearing police sirens, Alex tries to run away, but is betrayed by his droogs. Dim smashes a pint bottle of milk across his face, leaving him stunned and bleeding.
Alex is captured and brutally beaten by the police. A gloating Deltoid spits in his face and informs him that the woman subsequently died in the hospital, making him a murderer. Alex is sentenced to 14 years incarceration.
Two years into the sentence, the Minister of the Interior arrives at the prison looking for test subjects for the Ludovico technique, an experimental aversion therapy for rehabilitating criminals within two weeks
Alex readily volunteers. And he goes to the medic center.
The process involves drugging the subject, strapping him to a chair, propping his eyelids open, and forcing him to watch violent movies. Alex, initially pleased by the violent images he sees, starts to become nauseated due to the drugs upon realizing that one of the films' soundtracks is by his favorite composer, Ludwig van Beethoven, and that the Ludovico technique will make him sick when he hears the music he loves. He tries unsuccessfully to end the treatment.
After two weeks of the Ludovico technique, the Minister of the Interior puts on a demonstration to prove that Alex is "cured." He is shown to be incapable of fighting back against an actor who insults and attacks him and becomes violently ill at the sight of a topless woman. Though the prison chaplain protests the results, saying that "there's no morality without choice," the prison governor asserts they are not interested in the moral questions but only "the means to prevent violence."
Alex is released and finds that his possessions have been confiscated by the police to help make restitution to his victims, and that his parents have rented out his room.
Homeless, Alex encounters the same elderly vagrant from before, who attacks him with several other friends. Alex is saved by two policemen but is shocked to discover they are two of his former droogs, Dim and Georgie. They drag Alex to the countryside, where they beat and nearly drown him.
The dazed Alex wanders the countryside before coming to the home of Mr. Alexander, and collapses. Alex wakes up to find himself being treated by Mr. Alexander and his manservant, Julian
Mr. Alexander does not recognize Alex as his attacker but has read about his treatment in the newspapers. Seeing Alex as a political weapon to usurp the government, Mr. Alexander intends to expose the Ludovico technique as a step toward totalitarianism by way of mind control
As Mr. Alexander prepares to introduce Alex to colleagues, he hears Alex singing "Singin' in the Rain" in the bath, and the memories of the earlier assault return.
With his colleagues' help, Mr. Alexander drugs Alex and places him in a locked upstairs bedroom, playing Beethoven's Ninth Symphony through the floor below. Alex, in excruciating pain, throws himself from the window and is knocked unconscious by the fall.
It all appears on the newspaper
Alex wakes up in a hospital, having dreamt about doctors messing around inside his head.
Those are Alex's mom and dad visiting him
While being given a series of psychological tests, Alex finds that he no longer has an aversion to violence. The Minister of the Interior arrives and apologizes to Alex, letting him know that Mr. Alexander has been "put away," and offers Alex an important government job. As a sign of goodwill, the Minister brings in a stereo system playing Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. Alex then realizes that instead of an adverse reaction to the music, he sees an image of himself having sex with a woman in front of an approving crowd. He then states, in a sarcastic and menacing voice-over, "I was cured, all right!"
