Viddy Well...

Some films are better suited to a smaller screen. Those that limp lamely straight on to the shelves of Tesco, for example; never even intended for bigger things – strictly for home consumption only – the purchaser’s shame easily hidden by a bunch of bananas. Then there are those which the watching of on anything smaller than the side of your house would be an out-and-out tragedy. Clockwork Orange is a film that belongs firmly in this latter category; it’s just too big, too much for a television set. Way too disturbing to cosy up with, ultra violence deserves an ultra-large screen. There’s also something kinda neat about being able to see something that was released in the seventies as part of a proper cinematic experience today, dontcha think? So, viddy well, my droogies, viddy well...
