comment Explanation of the ending of A Clockwork Orange
Extra info: Something interesting is that Mr Kubrick might have misinterpreted the original work of Burgess: The book I am best known for, or only known for, is a novel I am prepared to repudiate: written a quarter of a century ago, a jeu d’esprit knocked off for money in three weeks, it became known as the raw material for a film which seemed to glorify sex and violence. The film made it easy for readers of the book to misunderstand what it was about, and the misunderstanding will pursue me till I die. I should not have written the book because of this danger of misinterpretation.

comment Is Captain Haddock Scottish?
So basically, from the original story, he belongs to no particular country, so he might as well be portrayed as a person from a country that Hollywood thinks is appropriate for traits such as that of Captain Haddock's? Interesting observation. +1
