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

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... read more

Among 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 watched it 50 years ago ?!? Even though th... read more

"11.5. Lolitaa pidin pitkään jonotuslistalla vain sen vuoksi, että olisin halunnut lukea Nabokovin romaanin ennen elokuvan katsomista. Tarpeeksi monta vuotta, kun elokuva oli jonotuslistalla seissyt, enkä saamattaomuudeltani saanut romaania luettua, oli aika kypsä. Elokuva käsittelee niin hienolla tavalla ihmismieltä, -toimintaa ja -haluja: saamista ja saamattomuutta, pelaamista ja tanssia. Viimeinen neljännes estää minua kuitenkin tykkäämästä tästä elokuvasta ihan niin paljon k"
