1971, Warner Bros., 136 min, Dir: Stanley Kubrick

Stanley Kubrick was so stunned by Malcolm McDowell's debut in IF... that he reportedly was unwilling to begin his film adaptation of Anthony Burgess' savagely brutal, futuristic satire until he could be assured of McDowell's participation. A CLOCKWORK ORANGE proved to be more prophetic than anyone dreamed, presaging the punk explosion and skinhead-fomented violence in the later 1970s.
