>>22507008I was retarded alright
>>22507008>Main character is an even bigger psychopath than in the film >Only thinks about sex and violence 24/7>Enjoys torturing small animals>Rapes two ten year old girls>Murders his cellmate in prison>Somehow ''grows out'' of being evil incarnate and decides to get a job
>that coverwho are those people lmfao
>>22507008It works much better as a story with the original endingOtherwise it's a novella about nothingKubrick himself said as much His American editor and Kubrick disagreed
>hey I know, I'll write a chapter that the entire story did not build toward at all where the main character shrugs his shoulders and says guess im a good guy now LOL

>>22507441A Velvet Orange
That book cover is retarded. Boomers are retarded.
>>22507470Velvet is socially acceptable. Just not for people who look like that.
Pretty much everyone agrees kubricks version is better
>>22508452Whoever agrees with Kubrick, is just afraid to admit that they were little violent shits as kids, like a lot of kids are, and when they grew up they got less extreme.

>>22508936Boys will be boys lol
>>22508960He was literally imprisoned, tortured, then beaten a couple of times and then driven to suicide thoughever.
>>22508964The murderer/rapist?Probably should have just hung him.
>>22508964A bit of banter innit
>>22507008the original ending was just fine. kubrik bastardized the redeeming final chapter for reasons unknown. burgess was not happy about it because he got tons of complaints about the nihilistic and morally-bankrupt ending of the movie. color me surprised.
>>22507025He did get raped at the end though, so at least there was some justice there (assuming he didn't enjoy it).
>>22509043>kubrik bastardized the redeeming final chapter for reasons unknown.He didn't 'bastardize' it. He adapted a different edition without the lame 21st chapter
>>22508936I never killed or raped anyone, neither did any of my friendsWhere did you grow up, Somalia?
>>22509313>Where did you grow up? Somalia?FTFY
>>22509140The 21st chapter was lame and unrealisticThe alternate ending was bleak and had no closure; but this is a dystopian movie after all
