CGiii Comment

The inspiration behind Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange...which doesn't exactly say much about either film...both being self-indulgent, pretentious guff.

A compendium of 60s film gimmicks, atrocious acting, a suicidal soundtrack...it's all too much.

Clashes of culture, generation, lifestyle and sexuality...and ,the result is a studenty piece of steaming piddle...no doubt, to be declared a masterpiece by pissy students who dislike a decent narrative.

Suicidal art.
