Happy Birthday, Me Droogs

I’m Singin’ in the Rain (kick), just Singin’ in the Rain (punch)

It was forty years ago today, that Stanley Kubrick’s A CLOCKWORK ORANGE was released to audiences in the UK. It would be released in the US on February 2. It’s an adaptation of the novella by Anthony Burgess about the dystopian future with gangs of thugs, government misuse of experimentation as means of rehabilitation and acts of ‘ultra-violence’. It centers around one young punk (Malcolm McDowell) named Alex and his gang (his Droogs) and the experiments done to him to make him ‘adverse to violence’ that send him on a journey from assailant to victim.
