A Clockwork Orange (1971)

"Doobidoob, yarbles! Great bolshy yarblockos to you. I'll meet you with chain or nozh or britva anytime, not having you aiming tolchocks at me reasonless."

If that all seemed like nonsense to you, that's only because you've somehow managed to miss out on one of the most celebrated films of all time. This is another one of those that everyone has seen hundreds of times, and it's such a big part of popular culture that not having seen it basically renders you less intelligent.

But for those that are already in the know, it's also quite fun to revisit the dystopian society of Clockwork Orange and view it through the glasses of current times. Like any classical science fiction, the future that director Stanley Kubrick imagined in the 70s, has turned out to be both wrong and right in so many ways.

So why not give it yet another go, and get lost in the colorful future of the past. You might still not understand my first paragraph afterwards, but I can guarantee you that you will enjoy it nonetheless.
