Malcolm McDowell & Ludwig van in A Clockwork Orange (1971, dir. Stanley Kubrick)
Q. Alex loves rape and Beethoven: what do you think that implies?
Stanley Kubrick: I think this suggests the failure of culture to have any morally refining effect on society. Hitler loved good music and many top Nazis were cultured and sophisticated men but it didn’t do them, or anyone else, much good.
