1971 M Contains violence.

Being the adventures of a young man whose principal interests are rape, ultra-violence and Beethoven.

Alex has his own way of having a good time. He has it at the tragic expense of others. He doesn't just like ultra-violence, he enjoys drugs and Beethoven's 9th. He and his gang rampage through a dystopian future hunting for terrible thrills. But when Alex finds himself at the mercy of the State and subject to the controversial treatment of Dr. Brodsky, the government psychologist, he finds that fun is no longer the order of the day... Hugely controversial when first released, A Clockwork Orange earned four Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture. Its power is such that it still entices, shocks and holds us in its grasp.

Glad I finally saw it. The violent parts had certainly stood the test of time and still deserved the R18 rating, however the dialogue was very drawn out and the style of speech got to be quite infuriating.
