It is 1987, and in the Republic of Britain the totalitarian Government desperately clings to power. The story in “Clockwork” centres around a police officer’s mission to track down an “undesirable”. A dark and dystopian tale. The movie was originally conceived as a tribute to A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess (and filmed by Stanley Kubrick), but was not intended to be a retelling of that story – instead it is an original story with some similar themes to A Clockwork Orange. This was the first time that the artist had attempted to make a serious movie, rather than comedy.
