    A love story disgusted with love.

    Stanley Kubrick's "Lolita", scripted by the novel's author Vladimir Nabokov, has managed to make a place for itself in the hearts of Humberts everywhere. It's filled with marvelous performances: James Mason as the tormented Humbert Peter Sellers as the degenerate writer Clare Quilty, who, in various disguises, chases Humbert and his Lotita as they journey across the American wasteland Shelley Winters as Lolita's mother,the repellent, hopelessly middle-brow Charlotte Haze, whom Humbert expediently marries. The film only hints at sex--a response, presumably to the realities of releasing movies in the early '60s. Fortunately, Nabokov was an ideal choice by Kubrick hired to write the screenplay, which helped keep "Lolita" from slipping into the exercise in sensationalism it might, very easily, have become. But "Lolita" the film is more a work of personal expression for it's director. His great theme--classical art, and its relationship to our lives--permeates "Lolita", as does his later works including "A Clockwork Orange", in which the protagonist beats a woman to death with a statue of Beethoven while listening to the Fifth Symphony. Even in his earlier work, Kubrick was defining his statement about he humanities: they do little to make us more human. Therefore, "Lolita" may not have offered a film version of what was most fascinating in the book is was based on, but it did provide audiences with yet another work of sophisticated entertainment that would have been impossible to make only a few years earlier.

    Kubrick, What Can't You Do?

    This blazingly terrific motion picture is many things, it's Peter Sellers breakthrough performance, it's a milestone in film history, and it's one of Kubrick's best. The movie is excellent, from the perfect first half, to the downbeat second half Kubrick has created a work of art here. This movie is now a cult classic and arguably one of the milestone provocative pictures. You read it, you can't unread it, this has been a review.
