  1. Wow, thanks for this.  I literally just finished the audiobook today and I highly recommend it.  The movie is very faithful to the book which I found surprising actually given Kubrick’s reputation.   One thing I didn’t know was that the book was cut for American release, omitting the last chapter.  That chapter was reinstated for the audio version I heard and it truly is a much better conclusion; it changes the story to a hopeful one.  I saw the film over 20 years ago and though I was a fan of it had no great desire to read the book, but doing so added such an extra dimension to this amazing story.  If you are a fan of the movie and you haven’t read (or listened) to the book, please do so, you won’t regret it.

    I’ve a weakness for highbrow analysis of classic science fiction. Burgess and McDowell are impressive in spontaneous conversation. I wonder if actors are stupider these days, or is it the talk show hosts who are stupider.

  3. I think producers today would be terrified to have a people talking at length in this arty way. The host would probably steer the conversation toward the rape and assault scenes.
