50 Years of A Clockwork Orange: Pre-Ludovico
Welcome to the 2-part special with your humble narrators, Ace and David. We are excited to break down Stanley Kubrick's A CLOCKWORK ORANGE (1971), celebrating its 50th Anniversary since it's release and a lot has happened since then.  The breakdown is divided into 2 parts. Films Unchained will cover the time-setting of the story before the controversial Ludovico technique, and Take 97: A Film Podcast will discuss the technique and beyond (November 19). Not only we will see you there with David on his podcast to break down the movie, but we will also see you next year for the second season of Films Unchained in 2022 as this would be the season finale of the podcast. Until then, I want to thank you for listening to Films Unchained and for your tremendous support. I really enjoyed this adventure and looking forward to many more. Cheers!

My Podcast Experience... So far.
For OUR 15th EPISODE, I'd like to share my experience on the podcasting journey. That includes my strengths, weaknesses, and challenges that I've faced since I began this podcast over 9 months ago!

And it could be beneficial for anyone who's interested in starting their own podcast and learn what we've learned. This is my podcast experience...... So far.

Then I can present my version of what happens in the movie, before we talk about the reception from the screen testing.  This movie has, as in Nirvana's song says, something in the way.
