I think his other big film was Clockwork Orange which I have never seen.  :dunno:

Have you not?  That does surprise me.  I think it was over-hyped, especially when it was withdrawn from the UK by Kubrick, but was probably quite shocking for it's time.

I don't think it's been on TV, has it?  Oh, maybe Channel 4.  :dunno:

Brilliant film for the time, almost a prediction of how society would deteriorate, and how desparate Govts would get. He also starred in Oh Lucky Man, weird, but interesting.

I think Clockwork Orange probably had much more of an impact at the time.  Apparently, Kubrick was threatened with arrest by the police, which prompted him to withdraw the film from the UK.

It was, and is, a very violent film. Amongst themselves, multiple rapes, gang wars, police and Govt.
