A Clockwork Orange
Due to a spate of crimes that employed violence similar to those depicted in the film, the press and many members of the public in the UK called for the film to be banned. At first, both the studio and Kubrick resisted. Yet when filming Barry Lyndon in Ireland, Kubrick began receiving death threats toward him and his family. The famed director immediately called for the film to be pulled from theaters, and it remained banned from any sort of distribution in the UK all the way up until Kubrick’s death in 1999.
