“Being the adventures of a young man whose principal interests are rape, ultra-violence and Beethoven.”
Without doubt the most controversial film of it’s day, and that’s saying something when you consider it was released alongside “The Exorcist” and “Last Tango in Paris”…This original 2019 BFI re-release UK Quad movie poster for Stanley Kubrick’s ultra-violent masterpiece “Clockwork Orange” is quite simply a stunning piece of Territory Studio design & artwork, with a strictly limited print run. The Film made a return to UK cinemas in April 2019 as part of the BFI’s Stanley Kubrick season. It still remains his most controversial work; quite a feat when one considers the range of topics the filmmaker explored across his remarkable career….This superb unrestored example is presented rolled (as issued) and displays to excellent effect with only very minimal handling wear. A superb addition to any collection (for display or investment) and an incredibly scarce piece of modern film and cultural memorabilia.
Trivia: The film was unavailable for public viewing in the UK from 1973 until 2000, the year after Stanley Kubrick‘s death. British video stores were so inundated with requests for the movie that some took to putting up signs that read: ‘No, we do not have A Clockwork Orange (1971).’…more detail
