Kubrick returned to scathing satire with his adaptation of Anthony Burgess’ novel, vividly realizing the over-stimulations of sociopathic rebel Malcolm McDowell and his gang of fair-weather fiends in a not-too-alternate Britain. The movie shocked in both form and content—Kubrick cut 30 seconds from the film after its initially X-rated release, and real-life copycat crimes led him to withdraw it from UK circulation for decades. Nevertheless, Oscar nominations came for Best Picture, Kubrick’s direction and screenplay, and Bill Butler’s editing.
