Watch: Scenes From Stanley Kubrick's 'A Clockwork Orange' Get 'Grand Theft Auto V' Treatment

Nothing says “a bit of the old ultra violence” like Stanley Kubrick’s 1971 masterpiece, “A Clockwork Orange” although Rockstar Games’ “Grand Theft Auto” videogame series comes close. And now, thanks to GTA Series Videos, we have a perfect mash-up of both.

Painstakingly recorded on next gen gaming system PlayStation 4, the six minute video recreates some of the most iconic and memorable scenes from the film as a “Grand Theft Auto V” video. In it, Alex —whose dialogue is still voiced by Malcolm McDowell— and his droogs rain their own special brand of terror down upon the hapless citizens who happen to cross their paths, and then upon one another.

The final couple minutes of the video recreates the scene in which Alex lashes out against the other droogs. “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.”

For comparison’s sake, you can check out the original scene below. We have to say we are pretty damn impressed by the team that put this video together. Watch below, and as you do, ponder this —is there any better modern video game that could showcase “A Clockwork Orange” as well as ‘GTA V’? [via Dangerous Minds]
