Alex is a teenage hooligan, in a near-future England, who gets jailed by the police. There, he volunteers for a new aversion therapy proposed by the government. "Cured" of his hooliganism and released, he is rejected by his friends and relatives. Eventually, nearly dying, he becomes a major government embarrassment and they arrange to cure him of his cure. He and his gang break into an author's home. The author is writing a book that is a plea against the use of aversion therapy, on the grounds that it turns people into Clockwork Oranges. In other words, they are not being good from choice

"Being the adventures of a young man who couldn't resist pretty girls, or a bit of the old ultra-violence, who went to jail, was re-conditioned, and came out a different young man. Or was he?"

Apprehended by the police, Alex is tried, sentenced, and sent to prison for fourteen years. Two years into his sentence, he signs up for The Ludovico Treatment, and is released as cured. However, the world is a harsh and violent place, and now Alex is unable to defend himself. O my brothers, what will happen to poor Alex now?

Luther by John Osborne( Visual )

Luther compresses nearly two decades into a provocative character study that parallels Martin Luther's deepening religious dilemmas with the irresolvable earthly anxieties that shaped his beliefs and his rebellious search for truth. We're introduced to Luther as a young monk in 1506, as he defends his vows to his jealous and disapproving father (Patrick McGee). But as Luther's religious commitment deepens, his faith in an increasingly commercialized, politicized, and spiritually empty Papacy atrophies until, having preached against the medieval Catholic Church's hypocrisy, he is called to account by the very bishops he must denounce

"Stanley Kubrick bent the conventions of the historical drama to his own will in this dazzling version of a pitiless aristocracy, adapted from a novel by William Makepeace Thackeray. In picaresque detail, Barry Lyndon chronicles the adventures of an incorrigible trickster (Ryan O'Neal) whose opportunism takes him from an Irish farm to the battlefields of the Seven Years' War and the parlors of high society. For the most sumptuously crafted film of his career, Kubrick recreated the decadent surfaces and intricate social codes of the period, evoking the light and texture of eighteenth-century painting with the help of pioneering cinematic techniques and lavish costume and production design, all of which earned Academy Awards. The result is a masterpiece--a sardonic, devastating portrait of a vanishing world whose opulence conceals the moral vacancy at its heart"--Container
