“Think as I think,” said a man, “or you are abominably wicked; you are a toad.” And after I thought of it, I said, “I will, then, be a toad.” ― Stephen Crane
Even the violence seems faked -- like "wrassling"
At 12 years of age, I was way too young to see "A Clockwork Orange" in 1972. Still, I got the gist of it via "Mad Magazine."
I saw it in the theater, loved the Ludwig van, saw it a couple of years after my divorce and thought "That's not very violent", but watching that clip now - wowsers - there's a lot of violence in that movie.Not going to watch it again. I have a great deal of respect for Anthony Burgess' linguistic skills, he really had a knack for mashing Russian into English and creating a khorosho malenky bit of slang.
