A Clockwork Orange Scene 6

Scene 6

Scene 6

  • Dressed in a purple waistcoat, Alex goes shopping.
  • He eyeballs two women who are looking at records and sucking on suggestive-looking popsicles. Yes, these popsicles are even more suggestive than your average, everyday popsicles.
  • He invites them to his house, and we get a high-speed threesome sequence set to classical music. You've seen one, you've seen them all.
  • He later descends into the lobby of his apartment building, where his little gang is waiting.
  • They were hanging out and Alex wasn't there, so they came to check up on him.
  • He says he was sleeping.
  • Dim suggests Alex should stay in bed, so Alex threatens them. He doesn't like hearing sarcasm from these losers.
  • Georgie stand up for Dim and tells Alex there's a "new way" and he isn't allowed to pick on Dim.
  • And he says they have a plan for a big theft that evening.
  • Alex goes along with them, but he's not happy that Georgie is trying to take the leadership position in the group.
  • As they're walking, Alex whacks Georgie in the crotch with his cane, and then kicks him into the river.
  • He knocks Dim in, too, and as he offers to help him out, he takes Dim's hand and cuts it open with a dagger.
  • Who needs enemies when you have friends like this?
