The Mechanical Orange depicts a futuristic London: a violent and decadent world dreamed by Anthony Burgess and reinterpreted by Stanley Kubrick in a masterful and controversial film, in the line of his other works.
Alex DeLarge is a young man of 17 years who, next to His dru-gos (henchmen, in the original nadsat slang of the writer), is the one charged with guiding us through this dystopian London. And it is that they are the perfect incarnation of the radical loss of values ​​that society suffers. Their idea of ​​fun is based on the consumption of drugs -health-plus, which they take in barKorova and which is a mixture of milk and various substances that exacerbate violent behavior-, ultraviolence itself and sex. Their attitude is continually challenging And confrontation of self-esteem, as well as the rest of the community: from the elderly to their own parents. However, can these young people be completely held accountable for their attitude? Is there no social responsibility in the education they receive? People are in large measure a product of the society around them. We observe in some sequences of the film a dirty and ruined streets but, perhaps intentionally, it is not clear if the chaosimperante is cause or consequence of the socially deviant behavior of the young protagonists.

After the film we can get together to share our points of view and have some coffee at Cielito Querido.

See you! 😉
