Please erect—I mean, direct—your attention to today's Overly Descriptive Title photo.
“Leave that alone. Don’t touch it! It’s a very important work of art!” said one of the female characters in Stanley Kubrick’s cult classic, A Clockwork Orange, before she was avante-gardely struck to death with the penis sculpture. Here, the filmmaker and former photojournalist is captured cheek-to-cheek (well, “head-to-head”) with the phallus in an outtake from the 1971 production.
Above is another behind-the-scenes shot from Kubrick’s psychological and socio-cultural flick, this time showing sequences from one of the many hard-to-forget scenes featuring lead character Alex, played by Malcolm McDowell.
It’s one of those visually and intellectually stimulating movies that you must see but might wish you hadn’t afterwards. Maybe just cover your eyes (or private parts) for some scenes?
