I haven't seen this film for a very long time,but would love to do so again.Most of the previous commentators have pretty much covered the film,several comparing it to 'A clockwork orange',but I can see another possible connection between the two films;the actual dress imagery of the two gangs is rather similar,as I recall(bowler hats in both,an umbrella aka Oliver Reed,& a large stick with Malcolm McDowell, plus rather uniform clothing).These 'looks' seem to me surrealist in style,maybe suggesting a link of mindless violence to mindless conformity,and I wonder if this less well known(now)film influenced 'A clockwork orange'?
