CGiii Comment

The hype around this film is a perpetual reminder of the pseudo-intellectualism that infects the film industry........

If Kubrick hadn't withdrawn it from British distribution - it would have been lost in the mists of time....and quite rightly so - because, now it is merely a dated monstrosity of a film.

It's like watching an overly long amalgamation of Monty Python & Carry On.... - without the laughs.

The acting - by all - is more ripe than an over-hung ham - equally pungent and repugnant.....and played against a backdrop of abhorrent synthesized Beethoven.

The satire rapidly become parody and deteriorates into the depths of pastiche and paltry pretension.

It is time to de-value this ego-driven, over-praised poacher and plagiarist.....of film.

So much from a director who claimed to love cinema - he closed London's La Scala in 1993 for showing his film...........it was allowed to be shown everywhere else in the world.

If this Orange was made now - it would receive nothing but howling ridicule.
