#833: A Clockwork Orange at 50 / Roadrunner / As Tears Go By (Wong Kar Wai #1)

With its provocative mix of giddy, nihilistic violence, social satire, and formal audaciousness, A CLOCKWORK ORANGE has been a cinephile rite of passage for decades. For their Sacred Cow revisit, Adam and Josh find a film that is both more philosophical than they remember–and perversely funny. Just how funny, however, is a matter of some debate. Also up for debate: how to read the film's memorable ending. Plus, the first film in the World of Wong Kar Wai Marathon, 1988's AS TEARS GO BY, and Adam's thoughts on the new ROADRUNNER: A FILM ABOUT ANTHONY BOURDAIN. 0:00 - Billboard 1:16 - Sacred Cow: “A Clockwork Orange” Marianne Faithful, “As Tears Go By” 45:08 - Adam: “Roadrunner” 58:21 - Next Week / Notes 1:08:21 - Polls 1:20:42 - World of Wong #1: “As Tears Go By” 1:42:57 - Outro / Outtake Learn more about your ad choices.
