The Complete STANLEY KUBRICK Exhibit at LACMA – » Kubrick’s “A Clockwork Orange” – A Violent Dance/A Discourse on Violence

Fine my boy. Absolutely fine. You see ladies and gentlemen, our subject is impelled toward the good by paradoxically being impelled toward evil. The intention to act violently is accompanied by strong feeling of physical distress. To counter these the subject has to switch to a diametrically opposed attitude. Any questions?

Choice. The boy has no choice has he? Self interest. The fear of physical pain drove him to that grotesque act of self abasement. It’s insincerity was clearly to be seen. He ceases to be wrongdoer. He ceases also of being a creature capable of moral choice.
