Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange, Paperback / softback Book

Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange Paperback / softback

Edited by Stuart Y. (Macalester College, Minnesota) McDougal

Part of the Cambridge Film Handbooks series

Description

Stanley Kubrick's 'A Clockwork Orange' brings together critically informed essays about one of the most powerful, important and controversial films ever made.

Following an introduction that provides an overview of the film and its production history, 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.
