A Clockwork Orange: a Critical View
By psychological definition, people affected with antisocial personality disorder (also known as "sociopaths" or "psychopaths") have incredible manipulation skills. They fail to conform to social norms, are deceitful and aggressive, and seek to destroy with little remorse. Sex, cruelty, and dominance define parts of antisocial personality behavior, and also perfectly define the odd, near-antithesis of a hero, Alex, in A Clockwork Orange who exists as the "beloved" psychopath in this story. He religiously ventures out on nightly rampages with his band of "droogs" after consuming some type of spiked beverage, tearing down what society has morally built and ripping holes into the reasoning of random citizens.
If ever there was a movie that depicted sociopathic behavior, A Clockwork Orange would be the one. Though this is Stanley Kubrick's adaptation to an Anthony Burgess novel about punk-rock gangs and brainwashing, the film perfectly portrays the bizarre and outlandish behaviors of a young male living with antisocial personality disorder. Though the film is, at times, hard to understand and subtitles may be found useful, this does not change the impact the movie has; It may even add to the atmosphere Kubrick is attempting to create and emphasize.
