A Clockwork Orange


Author Anthony Burgess said his novella A Clockwork Orange should have been forgotten, but because of Stanley Kubrick's film, it seemed destined to live on. It's the story of the barbaric passions of a British teen and the state's attempt to impose a mechanistic morality over his free-will. This weekend, The Salt Lake Film Society is screening the film, so Friday, we're rebroadcasting our conversation with the scholar Andrew Biswell. He joined us to explain why Burgess said the point of the book has been widely misunderstood. (Rebroadcast)

The Salt Lake Film Society is screening Stanley Kubrick's film adaptation of A Clockwork Orange this weekend at the Tower Theatre in Salt Lake City. It shows at 11 p.m. on Friday, August 19 and Saturday, August 20 and again at noon on Sunday, August 21. For more details, follow this link.
