Also, but kind of secondary, is the society in which the story takes place. All adults are required to work, and the new-pubescents are left to run thugh the cities mostly unsupervised to...explore their changing bodies and new (biologically) mature male and female identities. So its not just that the boys are brutes and rapists: the girls are whores and display near their crotches the names of the guys theyve screwed.
The novel is short and an easy read. I recommend it. It is narrated by "little Alex", just like in the movie. Or vice verce.
This futuristic, artsy joy ride is very unique in many ways. The storyline is one I could never imagine, I could never guess at what would happen next! The costumes and set designs have a futuristic 60's feel - I was complimenting a lot of details as I watched. Malcolm McDowell and cast were superb.
I gave this movie 4-stars out of 5 due to all the female nudity. The movie has a strong erotica theme throughout including scenes involving sexual violence (**definitely not suitable for youngens**). I am not a stuffy conservative when it comes to that sort of stuff, but as a woman, I felt it was a bit overdone.
