Just saw this film the other day, and what a great, crazy movie! It was so sick and twisted with a lot of hidden meanings underlining the main themes. Malcolm McDowell was creepy as Alex, the Droogan leader who is addicted to the old "ultra-violence."

Great film by a great director.

In my opinion, Kub is the second best director and this is his second or third best film.

Well Malcolm McDowell was suppose to play Sean, John's old friend in Ireland but because he was in another film ( Might've been Clockwork ) the part was given to David Warbeck.

Other than that I don't know. I haven't seen DYS for a few years.

Vivienne Chandler...she played the young Irish love interest (flashback scenes) in DYS: played a semi-nude maiden in ACO.

Oh, the girl in the car with John and Sean? I see.

Which semi-nude maiden was she in ACO? The one that was going to get the in-out from Billy Boy's droogs or the wife of the writer?

Oh wait, under the imdb credits she was one of the maidens in Alex's biblical dream.

Yes. ..I honestly can't recall which part of the movie she was in... but she was topless and I believe it was some sort of "fantasy/dream" scene. She was with other semi-nude women in the scene.

Yes it was the biblical dream. I wish Malcolm McDowell could've been in both films.

The first part is very, very good. But the second?

I agree, the first part when Alex is with the droogs is the best part. But the whole film is good, I just think the first part is a bit more entertaining.

There seems to be a common trend with Kubrick film reviews(Not quoting anyone in particular though): "I loved the first half, but the second half on the other hand..." Wink I'm always tempted when I see the Clockwork DVD at the bookstore.

I didn't notice that until you brought it up.

You're right Poggle! In every Kubrick film the first part is more entertaining to watch. The same can be said about Full Metal Jacket and Paths of Glory.
