Similarities between A Clockwork Orange (1971) and The Big Lebowski (1998)

Both of the main characters are iconic for drinking beverages that contain milk and alcohol, as well as constantly getting high. 

They both have an overweight friend, as well as a friend who works as a foil for the way they go about life. 

They also have a friend who seems to be out of sync with the rest of the group, and ultimately serves little significance to the overall plot. He’s just kind of… there. 

Established rival who has just about no impact on the story whatsoever. 

Iconic bar scene

Characters are fond of the old In-and-out 

Both of the main characters are nearly drowned to death

Woman obsessed with sexual art

Phallic drawings 

Humorous bath tub scene where something goes horribly wrong.

Both films are dark comedies. 

An antagonist, crippled to a wheelchair, who aims to exploit the main character for his own gain. 

Both films discuss what it truly means to be a man. 


‘A Clockwork Orange’, Stanley Kubrick (1971)

There was me, that is Alex, and my three droogs, that is Pete, Georgie, and Dim, and we sat in the Korova Milkbar trying to make up our rassoodocks what to do with the evening. The Korova Milkbar sold milk-plus, milk plus vellocet or synthemesc or drencrom, which is what we were drinking. This would sharpen you up and make you ready for a bit of the old ultra-violence.
