Fever Gets ‘Zammechat’ With Kubrick
It’s been a radosty raz at Fever this week, as one of our favourite and most zammechat sinnys is celebrating its 40th anniversary. For those of you that don’t speak Nadsat, the Russian/Cockney slang favoured by the Droogs in Stanley Kubrick’s seminal masterpiece A Clockwork Orange, we’ll explain a little more…
As one of the most revered director’s of all time, it’s no wonder that Warner Bros. wanted to mark the passing of four decades since the birth of Kubrick’s culturally resonant tour de force. A seven film Blu-ray box set, Stanley Kubrick: Limited Edition Collection, has been released to celebrate the occasion, and Fever was tasked with generating coverage for the anniversary.
First up, a great feature in The Guardian: G2 this week, which is a thoroughly interesting read including interviews with star of the film, Malcolm McDowell, Stanley’s wife Christiane and brother-in-law and executive producer, Jan Harlan.
Keep your eyes peeled for more of the same, as the film is due to be screened at Cannes Film Festival next week, and the box set release the week after.
