Vinyl is an embarrassingly bad film adaptation of the Anthony Burgess’ novel A Clockwork Orange that consists of horribly delivered lines, sadomasochistic inspired “treatment”, and go-go style dancing to random pop music all shot from a static camera in the foreground. Perhaps misunderstood by most when it was made, Vinyl remains a dull film experiment that would likely not have seen the light of day if it were not for Warhol’s notoriety (Klaus Ming January 2015).
