Another Kubrick classic!

Before the release of Dr. Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, Barry Lyndon, The Shining, Full Metal Jacket and Eyes Wide Shut, Kubrick gives us Lolita: a disturbing psychological romantic-drama involving a middle-aged professor called Humbert Humbert who meets Charlotte Haze. They get married but the real reason for that is so Humbert uses her by trying to get closer to her tee... read more

Amongst all the masterpieces Stanley Kubrick has made throughout his prestigious career, this flick doesn't seem to get much love but I do believe that it is actually rather underrated. As usual with Kubrick’s work, even if the movie is nowadays almost 50 years old, it still feels really modern. I mean, can you imagine how it must have felt when the folks watch it 50 years ago ?!? Even though th... read more

The subject matter of Lolita naturally poses some problems for a director, but this adaptation has ultimately gone down as a victory for the censors. The original novel was almost entirely focused on the character of Humbert Humbert, his flamboyant obsession with a young girl and the increasingly ridiculous lengths he goes to in an effort to keep the object of his affections.

Some good performances but ultimately flawed

“The subject matter of Lolita naturally poses some problems for a director, but this adaptation has ultimately gone down as a victory for the censors. The original novel was almost entirely focused on the character of Humbert Humbert, his flamboyant obsession with a young girl and the increasingly ridiculous lengths he goes to in an effort to keep the object of his affections. The genius in Humbert's character was that despite the hopelessly immoral nature of his actions, the reader could always sympathise with the position he found himself in.

In the film this dimension is ultimately lost. James Mason makes an admirable attempt to play Humbert and Shelley Winters is perfect as the naive Charlotte, but divorced of its finest material the tale becomes a rather dry affair and were i” read more

20 Films about... Sex & Sexuality (20 movies items)

"Vladimir Nobokov's book comes to film, as Kubrick presents the story of a middle aged man who falls for a soda-pop drinking, gun-chewing, overly flirtatious teenage girl, while staying at her mother's house. The film was more explicitly remade by Adrian Lyne in 1997, starring Jeremy Irons & Melanie Griffith."

British Comedies of the 40s, 50s and 60s (40 movies items)

"One of the most overlooked films in Stanley Kubrick's amazing canon, 'Lolita' is a film that baffled and continues to baffle many viewers. Although it is scripted by the author of the original novel Vladimir Nabokov, fans of that novel often complain of the decision to stage the controversial story of 40-something professor Humbert Humbert's sexual obsession with a teenage girl as a kind of comedy farce. But if you can divorce yourself from the source material (which was softened a little by ra"
