I don't remember much about this movie from those days, other than I was deeply disturbed by guys wearing adult diapers, make up, talking in riddles, and attacking men and women with canes.
Needless to say, when this movie came up on my list, I was not looking forward to reliving this memory.
I tried. I really did. I tried to appreciate this movie for its acting, its cinematography, its story, but I just couldn't do it. The concept of taking a gang of criminals and desensitizing them to be better people is interesting, but the story and the acting overshadowed it.
I am going to offend the whole Clockwork Orange cult following but.... I hate this movie. I have watched a lot of movies, and this is by far one of the weirdest I have ever seen. Weird isn't bad, but when it doesn't have anything else going for it, it sucks.
I would say, you should see this movie just so you can say you have seen it and for the cultural references that come along with it, but unless you find yourself somehow interested in joining its creepy following, this is one you can miss.
Rating: 1 out of 5
When to See It: You might enjoy this movie better after a long night of drinking, or if you can get your hands on something stronger.
