Watch with caution if you’re sensitive to flashing lights and fast moving images.
Stanley Kubrick films take a while to unpack. Watch his A Clockwork Orange once, you’ll see one thing. Watch it again, you’ll notice details you didn’t get the first time. Ditto the third time, and beyond.
Think you know A Clockwork Orange backwards and forwards? Good. Now check out A Lccokrkow Garneo, which takes all 245,000 frames of the 1971 dystopian film and randomizes them. You might see something you’ve never seen before.
If you’re prone to epilepsy, beware. If you’re not, good luck getting very far.
A Lccokrkow Garneo was arranged by Andrew Filippone Jr. (who gave us “Charlie Rose” by Samuel Beckett, a piece of comical absurdist theater we featured earlier this fall). The score for this randomized film is “an improvised work, recorded in one take while the movie played on a nearby monitor.” That you can watch unfold below.
