how graphic is the "singing in the rain" scene of A Clockwork Orange

#1
so after spending time in the pit, I was inspired to read A Clockwork Orange.

Yep, its fantastic.

But Im almost done and I want to watch the movie when I finish but I kinda want to watch it with my parents because they are actually interested in the story.
I can see the ultraviolence-rape scene on youtube but all the videos cut out before the rape part. Even when I turn safe search off.

I want to know how graphic this scene really is before I watch it with my parents. I have watched some pretty bad movies with my parents before though.

Description please

Quite graphic, Alex cuts the lady's clothes off and then rapes her. It's pretty obvious what's going on... I'm guessing you've already seen the singing+beating the shit out of the guy part.


Also... weren't we just talking about this movie in here a couple days ago? I remember saying this movie is overrated... this scene was one of the specific reasons why... certain people have, let's just say... ruined it for me. But that's besides the topic of this thread I guess.

You don't actually see him having sex with her, but you see everything up until that point. Also, a few other things have been changed in the film as well, i think if they put in the scene where he rapes the two girls the film would never have been released, it is still sort of there but the two girls are older and he has consensual sex with them.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

Theres a pretty long scene in which Alex has sex with two younger girls in his room. I can imagine that being pretty awkward with your parents, with 3 naked people chasing each other around a room.

k thanks guys.

how is the movie compared to the book anyway?

I see these amazing reviews online but I figure most of the critics have never read the book.

It's not exactly subtle, you know a bit of the old in-out's about to happen, but you don't actually see it. It is very graphic in people holding her down while he cuts of her clothes and sings, etc.

I saw the film before reading the book, and i kind of prefer the book as the film skips some parts out or glosses over them, although the film is very good and well put together.

This except you can appreciate the caliber of Malcolm McDowell's acting only when you see the movie. They are a different craft being one is a film and the other a book. It is a great adaptation anyways, like all Stanley Kubrick films.

Not very. It's just disturbing because they're having fun doing it. There's more nudity in an earlier scene where a rival gang is raping a girl. Also, you see part of Alex's dick when he's stripsearched.

Stanley Kubrick, in pretty much everyone of his films, has unashamedly shown nudity in one way or another. He has no fear when it comes to the nipple.
Afteral, the film was banned in many places. That should speak for itself.

the movie doesn't mind showing the peoples' "parts" but it's not really graphic. I'm surprised no one also mentioned the cat lady's house scene either.

anyways the book is much better than the film but the film is still good in its own respect, even without that last chapter added.

I know, but it's still classed as an iconically perverse and poignant film. A lot of people still are afraid to see it, same goes for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and others.

And it got an X rating in the US, originally.

Yeah, but like in Texas Chainsaw Massacre, a lot of what people who haven't seen the movie are afraid of is implied, TCM is a great example, because there's actually very little blood in the movie, but everyone sort of assumes that it's a total gorefest, Clockwork Orange is fairly simmilar in that regard, and BTW, there's nothing pornographic in the movie, there's a few topless shots (albiet in some pretty unpleasant contexts) but that's about it.

It's hardly "nice," but it's watchable. I wouldn't watch that movie with my parents though.
