Ridiculous and boring

I'm reviewing this film without a thought about Vladimir Nabokov's novel, for I don't think it's necessary to even bring it up as I'm reviewing the film, not to mention the remake of it...Plus I haven't read the book fully, so I can't judge it, yet. 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. Jeremy Irons plays his part well, but overall it's not great going, largely because the director doesn't really know where to go take the movie. He opts for the gray and gloomy period piece route and the result is that the film has no urgency and tension. We only get the occasional glimpse into the desperate mind of Hu... read more

Description: Humbert Humbert, a British professor coming to the US to teach, rents a room in Charlotte Haze's house, but only after he sees her 14-year-old daughter, Dolores (Lolita), to whom he is immediately attracted. Though he hates the mother, he marries her as this is the only way to be close to the girl, who will prove to be too mature for her age. 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)

An average movie

“I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since it was the last movie directed by Adrian Lyne that I hadn’t seen so far, I was actually quite eager to check it out, in spite of its rather notorious reputation. The tricky thing with this movie, and the previous version or the book, is that it deals with such a cringe-inducing story and, after all these years, it still remains one of the most disturbing tales. Eventually, it is the kind of movies that make you feel really dirty while you are watching it and also afterwards because it is pretty much a reminder that men are essentially wired to have sex with anything that moves. Concerning the story itself, even though I saw Kubrick’s version, it was years ago and I have to admit that I didn’t remain it much in details. A” read 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 "
