When / where: Banned in Ireland 1971-2000, UK - by Stanley Kubrick (1973-1999), Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea and Spain.
One of the most famous flicks on the list, Stanley Kubrick's adaptation of Anthony Burgess's best-selling novel was banned throughout the world thanks to its protagonist Alex and his gang of violent 'droogs' who kill tramps and rape women. But intriguingly, in the UK, it was withdrawn from theatres by the director himself.
Many thought that Kubrick withdrew the film due to claims of copycat violence which were allegedly inspired by A Clockwork Orange. But speaking after the great director's death his wife Christiane revealed that the actual reason he had the film banned was on the advice of the police, after severe threats were made to him and his family.
