Clockwork Orange  FEB 17 2004  rating: 5.0 stars

The trailer included on the DVD looks strikingly contemporary (pounding music, hundreds of cuts, very MTV) and must have been every bit as jarring** as the film to watch in a 1970s movie house.

** So jarring was the film to British audiences that after a short release, Kubrick withdrew the film from the theatres and it wasn't seen again in the UK until after his death.
