  A Clockwork Orange is a 1971 film adaptation of Anthony Burgess's 1962 novel of
  the same name. It was written, directed and produced by Stanley Kubrick. It
  features disturbing, violent images, facilitating its social commentary on
  psychiatry, youth gangs, and other social, political, and economic subjects in a
  dystopian, future Britain.
Visual Codes
• Flashing images of pictures related
  to the film with words that
  describe the film.
• The flashing shocks the audience
  and grabs their attention.
• Shows clips from the film broken
  which gives the impression that
  the film is unusual and different.
• Also show who directs it
Dress Codes
• Alex and his “Droogs” (Friends) during the killing scenes
  wore a white shirt, white trousers, white braces and a
  white (ish) underwear that go on top of the
  trousers, they also wore black boots and a black top
  hat.
• They each had their own individual characteristic for
  example: Alex wore false eye lashes on one eye, top
  and bottom, and carried a cane. Dim wore a chain
  round his waist, Georgia wore yellow eye shadow with
  a black line on the inside of his left eye, and Pete wore
  a purple eye shadow around his left eye looks like he
  has a black eye. This is unconventional of the horror
  genre as make up is seen as a feminine aspect and
  therefore it seems less scary, however it is unusual and
  controversial which is what the director wanted to
  achieve in this movie.
• The rest of the characters wore typically 60’s
  clothes, (bright colours, short skirts and cardigans), that
  is when the film was set and they wanted to make the
  film realistic so used typical clothes for the other
  characters.
Audio Codes
Diagetic Sound
• No Diagetic sound

Non Diagetic Sound
• Music – Beethoven 9th sonnet- Key part of the
  film as that is what influences the killing, and
  causes the reversing of the treatment.
  Orchestra music, dramatic and works with
  images on screen.
Action Codes
• Flashing Excites the audience, grabs
  their attention
• Images from the movie, mostly
  violent, shows the audience what
  the film is about, without giving the
  story away
• Flashing words
• Violent flashing images from the film
  grabs the audiences attention
Narrative Codes (Film)
Prop
• Hero -Alex
• Dispatcher – Narrator (Alex)
• Helper -Georgie, Dim, & Pete
• Villain – Alex (ish), Chief Guard Barnes, Dim and Georgie, Mr. Frank Alexander,
• Princess – Alex
• Donor - None
Not Conventional of it horror genre as the main character is more than one type which is
    confusing for the audience, however it works with the film itself as its meant to question
    your morals

Todorov
• Equilibrium – Alex and his Droogs happy killing and Raping random citizens
• Disruption – Alex gets arrested
• Recognition – has aversion therapy
• Attempt to Repair Disruption – He tries to Kill himself
• Reinstatement – Alex is back to his murderous self.
Unconventional and Conventional of its genre as traditionally in horrors the good triumphs over
   evil and in this case Alex is good, however he is also the villain and therefore its almost an
   unhappy Equilibrium.
