See this film: A Clockwork Orange at the Somerville Theatre

Nobody had as much fun with human folly as Stanley Kubrick, and two of his satiric masterpieces screen this week at the Somerville Theatre. His X-rated adaptation of Anthony Burgess's A Clockwork Orange (1971) still shocks today. In a hilariously awful dystopia the only sympathetic character is Malcolm McDowell's sociopathic delinquent, perhaps because he croons "Singin' in the Rain" and listens to Beethoven's Ninth Symphony while engaging in his ultra-violence. Or maybe because the authorities trying to rein him in are far more evil. It's twisted fun either way. The Somerville Theatre is at 55 Davis Square | Fri,July 22-Sat, July 23 @ midnight |  617.625.5700 or
