Malcolm McDowell on Stanley Kubrick: An all-too-human artistic genius

Malcolm McDowell is part of an increasingly exclusive club: He starred in a movie for Stanley Kubrick.

The film, of course, was A Clockwork Orange, the controversial 1971 movie about a young Beethoven-obsessed thug who becomes the government’s guinea pig for a Pavlovian mind-control technique to cure him of his criminal impulses.

McDowell was only 27 when he got the role of Alex DeLarge, the narrator and chief droog in Kubrick’s adaptation of Anthony Burgess’ 1962 novel. And though he would go on to create many other memorable characters during his career, Alex remains the one that is burned on the back of the eyeballs of many fans and cinephiles.

In Hollywood, there is a cult of Kubrick.

More than any other director, Stanley Kubrick is worshiped among his fellow filmmakers, and that reputation has only grown since his death in 1999. Paths of Glory, Lolita, Dr. Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, Barry Lyndon, The Shining, and Full Metal Jacket are revered as sacred texts among those who make movies.

Though Kubrick never won a best picture or best director Oscar (his only trophy was for visual effects on 2001), the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences chose to pay tribute to the filmmaker with a special showcase of his films and a reunion of four of his stars, who shared offbeat, funny, and often bizarre stories of the elusive filmmaker.
