    DD, have you read ACO? I'm curious if you just dislike the movie or the story itself.

    I wonder too

    (as far as I am concerned, the movie is brilliant, cinema-wise. I just loathe the story.)

    Nope, haven't read it Brice. I just couldn't sympathise with a man who not only seeks ultra-violence every night but also raping women, too, no matter how much he was psychologically castrated or how much he liked Beethoven. Also, the "government is fascist and amoral" storyline? Not only have I seen that done thousands of time already, I almost found myself actually siding with them on this one. Sorry, wasn't for me.

    It's just that I've found that most people who don't like ACO don't dislike the book or the movie really, but the story and apparent morality or lack thereof.

    I'd say I was one of those people then, Brice. I didn't really judge it on how it was directed really, just that it's the story itself that I didn't enjoy.

    The thing is though that Kubrick based his movie on the US edition of the book that existed at the time as opposed to what Burgess wrote. Basically it left the impression that Alex went one way at the end when he really ended quite differently. It's (the book) essentially to my thinking a three act play about freewill without the whole god element. There are more subtleties in the book.

    Artistically I agree with Jean, the movie is cinematographically superb....and has one hell of a soundtrack.

    One more thing I disliked about Gladiator? ??

    Spoiler:
    It begins with the ending. In this case, it was so obvious, I was like - oh, no way, you have got to be kidding me!
    The Man In Black Fled Across The Desert...

    ...And The Gunslinger Followed.

    Even though I'm still upset Kubrick pushed Burton out on the last round, I do have to vote for him here. He's definitely a very strong director, and he made one of my personal favorite films.

    *Raises Hand* I do like the book better than the movie, but ultimately I don't like the story. My reasons do actually go a bit deeper than "apparent lack of morality" but I suppose that's one way of putting it -- close enough on such a tangential thread as this one, so long as you're not assuming that we can't do real analysis.

    I just realized something. I've mainly judged these by how the work of a director has affected me emotionally, but with this contest neither one has done a damn thing on that front.
