orwell:

Alex
tries to reshape society by taking away the things that
make a society, society. The third and last pillar of society is
destroyed by him in his very privacy (room): religion. There are
four Jesus figures (nailed and wounded, bleeding with the crown of
thorns on their heads), but unlike the official depiction, they are
shoulder to shoulder with their right arms raised as if they are
protesting against something.

Since
Alex is the antithesis of society and now we are invited into his
privacy, he now lets his deepest and darkest desires surface. When we
couple Alex’s detest of society and the mocking of Christianity, this
scene is Kubrick’s criticism of religion which hinders protest and
favors obedience to its rules.

A Clockwork Orange (1971) dir. Stanley Kubrick
