Straw Dogs vs. A Clockwork Orange



It boggles my mind that for so many years people were horrified by the violence in A Clockwork Orange, to the point it was never broadcast on TV for decades. But a movie like Straw Dogs, which is more violent and made in the same year, was regularly broadcast on TV back in the day. A Clockwork Orange's violence is comical, Straw Dogs violence is dramatic. The only difference I can see that caused opposite backlash is the female nudity in A Clockwork Orange.
