A Clockwork Orange coming to special edition Blu-ray this May!

Mar. 31, 2011by: Mike Sampson

A CLOCKWORK ORANGE is currently available on Blu-ray and it's possible that many of you own it. But even if you do, I think you'll still want to pick up the brand new A CLOCKWORK ORANGE: 40TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION, which was just announced for a May 31st release.

In addition to the features already existing on the current Blu-ray, the two-disc set will include two newly-produced bonus features: Turning Like Clockwork, a 25-minute documentary about the films ultra-violence and its cultural impact, and a short documentary where Malcolm McDowell reminiscences on working closely with the legendary director. It will also include the feature-length documentary "Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures," once available separately on DVD but out of print for some time now.

The ANNIVERSARY EDITION will be packaged in a 40-page Blu-ray book that includes rare behind-the-scenes photos and a full set of production notes. It can be yours for a list price of $34.99 but if you click that little red link below, you can pre-order it for $25.99 (hint, hint).

I'll just stick with my original Blu-Ray. The extra features aren't worth it imo.

I really wish I had liked this movie more but this movie was hyped so much my entire life and everybody always seemed to talk about the first half hour, so I was thinking that would be what the entire movie was, a bunch of guys running around causing chaos and shit. Wouldnt surprise me if I liked more on a second or third viewing

It's a deep film that I had to grow into. It's much more a message about society than just a precursor to hip, violent for the heck of it films.

This is a movie that is good, but is only worth a watch or two because of the brutality.

I had a hard time watching it.

What is the deal with people around here being negative towards people who say they have a hard time watching something?
