Book Description

Stanley Kubrick's "A Clockwork Orange" brings together new and critically informed essays about one of the most controversial films ever made. A suite of essays examine the literary origins of the work, the nature of cinematic violence, questions of gender and the film's treatment of sexuality, and the difficulties of adapting an invented language ("nadsat") for the screen. This volume also includes two contemporary and conflicting reviews by Roger Hughes and Pauline Kael, a detailed glossary of "nadsat" and stills from the film.

any one who knows anything about the book should know the title does not include the film makers name. the essay is good at what it does: film analysis. people need to pay more attention to what they do and perform a modicum of research.

I was under the influence that this was A Clockwork Orange; however it is not by the time my kindle downloaded it, it was to late to cancel.
What I did get was an extremely short essay. Even if I knew what I was buying the shear lack of content would not be worth the $15.

I found it a tough read, but I'm not schooled in film and I think that is who this book is aimed at. I will definitely read it again to see if I can gain more insight and, who knows...the star rating may go up.

I first opted out of this for an English class and this has anarchistic themes coupled riddled with a customised slang. I would have had to write a bevy about human nature and I am jaded as to the timeline. There was a French film we watched, I kid you not, three times about troublesome adolescents and the principle of 'Actione Reactione' pardon le francais. What are the motives behind all these characters, pointedly self-serving, in the bigger scheme of things?

Made the same mistake as the previous reviewer. I thought this was the actual book, and it is not. I'm sure, if you want to read an in-depth analysis of Stanley Kubrick and his making of the movie that was a translation of the book, that this is a fine piece of work. It is, however, not the actual book itself. Spent $9.99 on the wrong book...
