First screened in August 2006
Director: Andy Warhol. Cast: Gerard Malanga, Tosh Carillo, J.D. McDermott, Ondine, Edie Sedgwick, Larry Latrae, Jacques Potin. Screenplay: Ronald Tavel (based on the novel A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess).

Twitter Capsule: Warhol an apt fit with Clockwork Orange. Captures the violence, lassitude, and inarticulate insurrection in very few setups.

VOR:   May not stand out far from other Warhol gambits, but beyond its own bracing qualities, it shakes up how "adaptation" can work.
