A Clockwork Orange

Alex DeLarge (McDowell), a violent juvenile in the near future, is caught after a number of brutal rapes and murders. While imprisoned, he submits to a controversial experiment to make criminals ill at the mildest suggestion of violence or conflict or anything sexual. Now Alex's victims want to welcome him back into society with the same enthusiasm Alex had always exhibited when performing his crimes.

Continuity mistake: When Alex goes out from the cat woman's house, his pants are white and clean; then Dim crash a bottle onto his face and before falling down Alex's pants are dirty at knees. In the following scene, at the interrogation, his pants are clean again. (00:41:30)

Alex: As we walked along the flatblock marina, I was calm on the outside, but thinking all the time. So now it was to be Georgie the general, saying what we should do and what not to do, and Dim as his mindless greeding bulldog. But suddenly I viddied that thinking was for the gloopy ones and that the oomny ones use, like, inspiration and what Bog sends. For now it was lovely music that came to my aid. There was a window open with the stereo on and I viddied right at once what to do.

Question: I don't understand why Alex waits until Mrs. Alexander has unchained the opened front door and fully opened it, before he and his droogs break in. I'm sure the four of them could easily have broken the chain off with a bit of force. Is it simply part of Alex's nature to be invited in, before he starts his attack?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: It's part of the "fun element" of the crime to get the victim to open the door themselves.
