Every once in a while, Malcolm McDowell comes around for an interview about his latest film or TV show, like Gangster No. 1, the Halloween remakes, or “Heroes.” Of course the temptation is always to throw in a Clockwork Orange question. Now finally here’s a chance to talk about nothing but A Clockwork Orange.
For the Stanley Kubrick film’s 40th anniversary, A Clockwork Orange makes its debut on Blu-ray. McDowell is featured in many bonus features looking back at the film, and he also gave some in person interviews at the Warner Home Video offices to support the release.
I threw in a Caligula question to compare the context of another legendarily controversial Malcolm McDowell movie, but really I stuck with Clockwork Orange. I could have asked up his upcoming roles in Silent Hill 3D or Vamps but do you really need news scoops on a video game movie sequel? Better to dig into the legacy of the droogs, copycat violence and to a lesser extent, Roman orgies.
A Clockwork Orange Blu-ray streets May 31 along with a Stanley Kubrick Blu-ray collection and Malcolm McDowell’s Never Apologize DVD.
