A Clockwork Orange

Dir. Stanley Kubrick
With Malcolm McDowell, Patrick Magee, Michael Bates
1971, 136min, 35mm

 

Stanley Kubrick's chilling adaptation of Anthony Burgess' novel—in which Malcolm McDowell's sadistically grinning, mascara-sporting street punk unleashes ultra-violence in an ultra-mod dystopia—remains an unsettling, envelope-pushing vision of nihilistic brutality and totalitarian social control. A transfixing spectacle of stylized camerawork, slow-motion savagery, and dark wit, it's the rare film to have entered the canon that can elicit adulation and outrage in equal measure.

 
Les Saignantes

Dir. Jean Pierre-Bekolo
With Adèle Ado, Dorylia Calmel, Emile Abossolo M'bo
2009, 97min, Digital

 

Cameroonian auteur Jean-Pierre Bekolo concocts an explosively outré sci-fi satire that rivals A Clockwork Orange in its subversive sociopolitical commentary. In contrast to Kubrick's angry-young-man provocation, Bekolo's vision is blazingly (Afro)feminist, as a pair of supernatural lesbian call girls use their powers to smash a futuristic Cameroon's corrupt/vampiric political patriarchy. The film's dreamlike dystopian atmosphere is heightened by an appropriately grimy, neon-spattered visual style.
