|A Clockwork Apple||4/3/08||by Belinda Webb. This is a modern telling of ACO if Alex was a girl. Here's what the author told me: "I should point out that it most certainly is not a story of 'how Alex would be if he were a girl' - although there are elements I have used in homage to the writer himself because, like Anthony Burgess, I also grew up in Moss-Side, albeit fifty years apart. Moss-Side is a very dodgy area, just like, in fact the setting in my novel. The apple of the title refers to the apple of knowledge/Eve in Eden etc. yet the storyline of my novel deals with a society that is ruled by addiction therapy and where those who have grown up in bad areas cannot get the education they deserve, unlike the Blytons who are treated differently."

He loved life, loves to get up, though he may be getting up to beat or maim, there is something infectious about it. The Singin in the rain sequence started off when Stanley said can you dance.

What he did worked. MM - I've always been drawn to parts with an edge, I'm not personally a good reactor. I think heroes are mainly reactors, they don't drive the story so much as react to it.

I went out to meet SK in North London and he didn't tell me anything about why he wanted to see me until the very end when he handed me a book and I looked down and noticed it was ACO. It was a very, very intense 6 months for me because I was in every shot. He was a brilliant director for me, I said to him once can you give me an idea how you direct and he said no not really, I know what I don't want, but don't know what I do want. I went oh, OK. Physically the most difficult sequence in the film for me was the lidlocks on the eyes. My eyes were anesthetized by a doctor from an eye hospital who kept ramming a handkerchief in my eye to see if it took effect. I'm sitting in a straight jacket watching movies. It was only on the ride home when the anesthesia wore off and there was such pain, it was staggering. We were sitting around for a week trying to do the gang bursting into this writer's house. Out of sheer boredom Stanley walked over to me and said can you dance? I said sure, I love to dance, I'm just Singin in the Rain, whack. The whole thing was an improv, for fun. I think it's my song, sorry Gene. I remember going into my local newsagent in London and I'd been going there for years and the man just cowered, I went it's me, I've come for my Times you know, I'm not going to beat you up, don't worry. It was a lifetime experience. ACO is coming up next on Cinemax so viddy well little brothers, viddy well."|

The first time we went there it was extraordinary, Thamesmead at that time won awards all over Europe, so it was quite beautiful. We shot the sequence there, 6 months later Stanley didn't think it worked so we went back and I had to go in there again. Apart from it being nominated for Oscars there was a lot of seriously bad press in this country about it. A lot of that stuff was utter rubbish to me. I can't see a mindless yob sitting through ACO from beginning to film, it's not that kind of film. Have you been here since you shot it? No, never in my life. You never went back to any film locations? Are you kidding? They'd probably shoot me wandering around, if they recognized me. Would they? Do I still look the same?|
