A Clockwork Orange vs Straw Dogs

Two controversial films released in 1971. Both were criticised for their extreme violence particularly sexual violence as both films contained rape scenes. As a result both were banned in the UK for many years but have been re-released since it is the 21st century and times have changed. Having said that I prefer A Clockwork Orange because despite the brutality, there were some comic elements and it did make you feel sorry for Alex despite his thuggery. I felt that Staw Dogs was more nastier despite the talents of Dustin Hoffman and Susan George. What do you think?
