Did you know that Andy Warhol tried to adapt A Clockwork Orange the novel by Anthony Burgess? Probably not, but you’ve probably heard about one of his movies named Vinyl released in 1965. Well, Vinyl is Andy’s interpretation of A Clockwork Orange. This one-hour-long film features a series of images of brutality, beatings, torture and masochism all performed by a group of men under the gaze of a glamorous woman. Vinyl stars some of Andy’s Factory regulars including Gerard Malanga, Edie Sedgwick and Ondine.

This adaptation bears the clear signature of Andy’s earliest films. Filmed in one shot with one camera Andy allows his stars to improvise and react to each other in non-scripted ways while following an overall concept and idea for the film.
