A Clockwork Orange: Ludwig Van

Time for some Ludwig Van. Though it’s the final movement that Beethoven’s 9th is famous for, it’s the scherzo that suites this movie, and Alex, best with its mischeviousness as it skips along – like silvery wine flowing in a spaceship; gravity all nonsense now.


There’s actually quite a lot of Classical music used in the movie, so fyi
