Alex DeLarge is very much a product of the world and society that Kubrick creates here, which is seemingly dominated by anarchy, chaos and primitive human drives all of which relates to the id, which Alex is pretty much a personification of during the beginning of this movie.

And this perhaps has never been more apparent than in the case of A Clockwork Orange, Stanley Kubrick's masterfully crafted, dark, dystopian social lesson on the necessity of violence in the world, and how people react to its existence.

The doctor standing over Alex as he is being forced to watch violent films was a real doctor, ensuring that Malcolm McDowell's eyes didn't dry up.

I believe this is the main reason Kubrick adapted the novel, he shared with Burgess, the disgust of governments trying to dictate and control the way we live, essentially robbing us of our freedom, which, in Kubricks perspective, is as bad as anything Alex and his cronies do in the film.

I wish I could give this film a 6 out of 5 just for a revolutionary, directorial look, where Kubrick has many bad scenes accompanied by jolly music; where if we are to experience them as we should, we have to do it consciously, by realizing they are bad, and not because the director tells us so through the use of music and images.

So i guess the film does a good job at sucking us into how much life sucks for Alex after he gets arrested *the world he inhabits is no longer visually stunning* - but that dosen't matter because really it's just not a good enough excuse for the visuals to be bland.

There is something else that came to mind while viewing A Clockwork Orange, and that is that the society that Alex lives in is only slightly better than he is.
