Rachel's Blog: A Clockwork Orange

Tue, 03 Jan 2006

My first film of the year, and one I hadn't seen before. (I know what have I been doing?) A typically belaboured, for Kubrick, first act, but otherwise a really smart film. Great use of music too. Although I never realised before what uniformly large breasts the women of 1971 had.

It's been discussed in my presence (it's not like I could contribute) before that there appears to be a generational oscillation in that department. Possibly it's a nutriotional thing. Or maybe it's just a cyclic fashion.

For more information on the subject of pneumatic women, time to watch "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls"(1970), then for an historical perspective, check out "Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!". Interesting to compare with Clockwork Orange. (BTW, nothing rhymes with Orange either, which is how I stumbled on this site some time ago)

There's a Kubrik exhibit at ACMI - it really blows!
