Clockwork Orange – new DVD + Alex’s OTHER favorite music
So one of my favourite new Xmas presents was the new special edition DVD of A Clockwork Orange….Malcolm McDowell’s commentary really makes it interesting! While watching the film through again, I noticed this….
^ ^This is the tape Alex removes from the player to listen to Beethoven. ^ ^
If I’m not mistaken, this is one of the “top 10” records at the music store, Goggly Gogol, the type of crappy pop music that book-Alex condemns. HA, but he was listening to it!
Now hold on, you say, it could be a leftover of some OTHER time he invited girls over. That could be true. But it’s certainly interesting and testament to how much the set and props people were involved with little details 🙂
I also got a Bluray player, which made me kind of sad, seeing as how the new special-edition Clockwork Orange set was ALSO released on Bluray. But it’s not like I’m missing anything by not seeing it in HD, it’s a pretty graphically-simple film. It would probably ruin all the already-low tech stuff…..
But I’d love to hear from anyone who’s seen it in HD what the differences are, if any.
