It works much better as a story with the original ending
Otherwise it's a novella about nothing
Kubrick himself said as much
His American editor and Kubrick disagreed

A Velvet Orange

>> No.22507497

That book cover is retarded. Boomers are retarded.

>> No.22508448

Velvet is socially acceptable. Just not for people who look like that.

Pretty much everyone agrees kubricks version is better

>> No.22508936

Whoever agrees with Kubrick, is just afraid to admit that they were little violent shits as kids, like a lot of kids are, and when they grew up they got less extreme.

the original ending was just fine. kubrik bastardized the redeeming final chapter for reasons unknown. burgess was not happy about it because he got tons of complaints about the nihilistic and morally-bankrupt ending of the movie. color me surprised.

>> No.22509132


He did get raped at the end though, so at least there was some justice there (assuming he didn't enjoy it).

>> No.22509140

>kubrik bastardized the redeeming final chapter for reasons unknown.
He didn't 'bastardize' it. He adapted a different edition without the lame 21st chapter

>> No.22509313

I never killed or raped anyone, neither did any of my friends

>Where did you grow up? Somalia?

>> No.22509321

The 21st chapter was lame and unrealistic
The alternate ending was bleak and had no closure; but this is a dystopian movie after all
