Title Best
Clockwork Orange, AR4
    The Region 1 version of this disc misses out on;
  • Proper aspect ratio (the Region 1 version is instead presented in the ratio of 1.55:1)
  • Dolby Digital 5.1 remix
    According to Widescreen Review, the Region 1 version of this disc suffers from compression artefacts in spite of also having RSDL formatting. This makes the Region 4 version of the disc the better choice.

There is also now a remastered version of this disc available in Region 4. Telling the two apart is a simple matter of looking for the "Stanley Kubrick collection" banner at the top of the slick. If it is not there, then you're looking at the disc described in this review which, in spite of its flaws, is the better transfer by virtue of having the original monaural soundtrack included, and less problems with film-to-video artefacts. Whether this version will remain available after the release of the Stanley Kubrick collection remains to be seen.
