If they remade it today they'd probably have to change his rape victim to an 8 yr old disabled kid to have the desired impact.
You think so? I almost threw up at that scene. shite was disgusting. Even thinking about it now gives me the fricking heebeejeebees.
To the OP: frick no I don't feel bad for the guy. He was a piece of shite sociopath. As a metaphor for the degradation of society, he was quite effective. The fact that he was rather violently "rehabilitated" shows the irony of British society condemning the ultraviolence of that particular generation. The fact that he reverts shows the hopelessness of any return to "civilized Britain," which phrase may, in and of itself, be ironic (or oxymoronic).
