      what did you guys think of the movie... or the book if you've read it?

      i liked it, but i think i would have appreciated it more if i was high on something.

      I have heard it is a kick ass movie, but i have never had the *pleasure* of seeing it myself. or reading it for that matter

      Donnie Darko

      How many of you have experienced this film?

      It's like a dream itself.

      Stanley Kubrick mixed with Anthony Burgess=genius. What could be better? Stanley Kubrick+Steven Spielberg... too bad Stan died during the production of AI..

      Anyways, a very interesting story. I loved the symbolism of Anthony developing the evil image of Alex. I especially loved the idea of how he imagined himself being a roman whipping Christ.

      The arguments thoughout the movie seemed to be consistent around two major points. One was severely opinionated; would God appreciate society forcing others to be socially "good"? Or should man have free will? The other was simply the moral that you can't change a person..

      You can't necessarily experience because that would mean you have been brainwashed and conditioned to the state of emotionally rebuffing certain values (typically sociall negative) in response to conditioned associations (basic psychology). If you were to actually experience it in a dream, your dream would have to be a third party manipulator of your subconscious. This brings up an interesting idea.. manipulating people through their dreams and indirectly subconscious. Think a lot of movies were based off of that.. anyways, broad topic there; I'm sure you understand.

      What do you all think about the idea of rehabilitation portrayed in the movie? What's more important? Mass modernised ethics? Or freedome of choice?

      This has always been one of my favorite movies and I even read the book too! The book I read was supposed to have the original ending that was left out in the first American edition of the book because the publisher didn't think that American audiences would care for it, at least that's what the editor's note said.

      Anyway, in the last chapter after Alex is reverted back to his old self like in the end of the movie he once again joins a gang and picks up where he left off. But as time goes on he feels he's missing something. One night he runs into Pete (the quite one) with his wife and child. After speaking to him for awhile he realizes that's what he was missing. He wanted to settle down and have a family. So basically he left the criminal life he was leading on his own.
