* JerkassHasAPoint: Joe, the lodger, was particularly mean and critical towards Alex, who was feeling the effects of his treatment. However, Joe was right in that Alex's crimes were sickening.

In a [[{{Dystopia}} dystopic]] future where [[TeenageWasteland street crime is rampant and youths are uncontrollable]], teenage sociopath Alex [=DeLarge=] (Creator/MalcolmMcDowell) and his "Droogs" [[TeensAreMonsters prowl the night spreading terror and destruction wherever they go]]. By daybreak, Alex returns home to his [[AdultsAreUseless vapid parents]], who turn a blind eye to his activities, and enjoys his second favorite thing in the world: classical music. On one particular night, his gang brutalizes some people they find on the street, then steal a sports car and drive out to an isolated mansion to torture and rape the resident couple. They finish the night off at their local watering hole, where they sip milk laced with narcotics.

** Interpretations of Alex as being [[ArmoredClosetGay gay and repressed]] are surprisingly common. These are based on his relatively effeminate behavior, his treatment of the cane as a sort of "replacement penis" (in particular, the fact that he keeps waving that big, sturdy, erect thing around where everyone can see, but pulls a tinsy-tiny knife out of it when it's time to do the deed...), his completely passionless sexual treatment of women and his attachment to an all male friend group.

** The story is ultimately a tremendous, social ordeal with plenty of heinous and/or pointless crimes commited by both Alex and the government, but it all ends in a chirpy note with Gene Kelly's original, uplifting version of ''Singing in the Rain''
