A Clockwork Lemon….?
Speechless O my brothers, I can’t quite wrap my Rasoodock around this offence to bog. If you thought it was a strange old world then how does the prospect not only of A Clockwork Orange sequel grab you, but also a sequel starring the son of the utterly demented Klaus Kinski? Here’s the ‘official’ blurb – ‘In the near future the society of a megalopolis is divided into two fractions: on one side a super-rich minority, led by the ruthless dictator Lucius (Werner Daehn), living a life of debauchery and decadence. On the other side the vast majority, dwelling in different degrees of nearly unbearable poverty;’
‘When the young Frederick (Nikolai Kinski) comes in possession of the partial copy of a long forbidden Stanley Kubrick movie, it sparks a growing movement amongst the city’s formerly aimless youths, developing fast into serious opposition to the ruling system, which retaliates with rapidRasoodockly increasing brutality. Frederick becomes Alex, his friends the new droogs. But are they even aware of the consequences of their actions?’ I really can’t see how this could even remotely get sanctioned by the Kubrick estate or Warner Brothers, and judging by the trailer I can’t say I’m considering establishing a petition to bring this to the screen. Anyway, I always thought that if you had the yarbles to embark on such a redundant and pointless folly as remaking or sequalising A Clockwork Orange you’d have to employ 1980/90’s Gary Oldman as the new Alex;
