Alex DeLarge is the charismatic and psychopathic delinquent whose pleasures are classical music (especially Beethoven), rape, and ultraviolence. He is leader of a small gang of thugs. Alex narrates most of the film in "Nadsat", the fractured contemporary adolescent argot comprising Slavic (especially Russian), English, and Cockney rhyming slang. A Clockwork Orange features disturbing, violent imagery to facilitate social commentary on psychiatry, youth gangs, and other topics in a futuristic dystopian England.
