Ridiculous and boring

But if it's anything like this crap, then it won't be a nice judgement, that's for sure...

Excuse me, but I have to ask: Why would anyo... read more

Let’s get the big elephant in the room out of the way first: no film adaptation will ever be as good as the novel Lolita. The first half hour, give or take, does come close to matching the seductive, sumptuous, comic and doomed narrative of the novel. And shortly thereafter, Adrian Lyne decides he wants to stop making a luscious and vivid adaptation and make an overly stylized intriguing mess of... read more

The movie (like the book) is an interesting study of obsession and desperation.

They start a journey together, trying to hide they're not just (step)father and daughter, throughout the country, being followed by someone whom Humbert first suspects to be from the police. The profound jealousy, and maybe some guilt from the forbidden love, seem slowly to drive the man em ... (more)

"Lolita - Vladimir Nabokov “Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Lo-lee-ta: the tip of the tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth. Lo. Lee. Ta. She was Lo, plain Lo, in the morning, standing four feet ten in one sock. She was Lola in slacks. She was Dolly at school. She was Dolores on the dotted line. But in my arms she was always Lolita. Did she have a precursor? She did, indeed she did. In point of fact, there might have "
