A Clockwork Orange is excellent as well, but it raises ugliness and violence to an art form. Many of it's images will be burned into your brain for a long, long time after you view the film, for better or worse.

I remember going to a Halloween party about 5 years ago and the guy dressed up as Malcolm McDowell's character but I didn't know who he was supposed to be. He was horrified - oops!

I probably will see both movies. Now I just need to pick the appropriate pharmaceutical agent .
