How far can one go in ripping off Kubrick?
24 July 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

When I picked up "Una gota de sangre para morir amando" (called "Murder in a Blue World" in English), I think that the box loosely said something about it being a Spanish "Clockwork Orange". It turns out that the movie is a total rip-off of "A Clockwork Orange" (to the point where they even mention "ACO" in a scene right before a motorcycle gang attacks). The main plot has young nurse Sue Lyon luring men to their dooms...just for the hell of it, apparently. What makes this world so blue?! Aside from the plot, the other Kubrick connection is "Lolita". There's of course the ex-nymphet Sue Lyon, but one scene even shows a person holding Vladimir Nabokov's novel! For the most part, it wouldn't be fair to compare this movie to any of Kubrick's movies. It's an OK way to pass time. The only real downside is that Sue Lyon doesn't do any full frontal nude scenes (in this sort of movie, she should have). Also starring Chris Mitchum (Robert's son).
