Gather your droogs, for the first time ever Kubrick's iconic dystopian film A Clockwork Orange will be available in glorious 4K with HDR. Directed, written and produced by Kubrick, based on Anthony Burgess’s 1962 novel of the same name. A Clockwork Orange was nominated for four Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay (Based on Material from Another Medium) and Best Film Editing. Selected by the United States Library of Congress in 2020 for preservation in the National Film Registry, deemed as "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."
Malcolm McDowell stars as Alex DeLarge, the leader of a gang of "Droogs" (Warren Clarke, James Marcus and Michael Tarn.) The violent gang spends their nights frequenting the Korova Milkbar and partaking in "ultraviolence". When Alex is forced to undergo behavior modification therapy, he is left defenseless in a world in which he perpetuated violence, leaving many victims in his wake.
The 4K restoration was conducted by Warner Bros.’ Motion Picture Imaging (MPI). Kubrick’s former right-hand man Leon Vitali and the Kubrick Estate worked closely with the team at Warner Bros. during the mastering process.
