Movie Review No. 40: "Lolita" (1962). The tagline for this movie was "How did they ever make a movie of Lolita?" Aside from being a tagline, it's actually not that bad of a question. It takes a groundbreaking auteur like #stanleykubrick to film a controversial adaptation of a controversial novel.

Based on the novel by Vladimir Nabokov, who also wrote the screenplay, the film follows a middle-aged English professor from Europe named Humbert Humbert (#jamesmason). Humbert stays in the home of sex-craving widow Charlotte Haze (#shelleywinters). Charlotte wants Humbert, but he is completely enamored with her daughter, Lolita (#suelyon). He is so enamored that he marries Charlotte to be closer to Lolita. Charlotte later discovers Humbert's feelings for Lolita, she sends her daughter to summer camp. When Charlotte unexpectedly dies (SPOILER ALERT!), Humbert goes after Lolita, thinking that he has her to himself, and they set off across the country together.

Kubrick is definitely more present in this movie as director. What's interesting is that Lolita isn't about spectacle like some of his other films. It is mostly substance, but still has plenty of style. The film is mostly about the story and dialogue, which is necessary, if unconventional. One may argue that Kubrick screws us over doing this, but it helps advance the movie and make it great.

The screenplay and acting go together very well, particularly with Humbert. His characterization is something to marvel at. As the main character, we don't really have a choice but to root for him, but we also hate him for engaging in an illicit affair with a 14-year-old girl. The interest we have in him never fades, but Kubrick's approach is to have him become less interesting as the films wears on. He's made to be pretty pathetic by the end because he's been undone by something that was never meant to be. James Mason's performance adds to this, as he conveys what could be unrequited love or jealousy, but also could be helplessness. Sue Lyon stands out as Lolita. She captures what we can assume is rebellion, but also innocence when it comes to what's really mature.

Uh porque no lo vi ayer, de lo que me perdia, por suerte aun no se ha acabo el mundo asi que hoy se reseña esta pelicula terror y suspenso o mejor dicho mas suspenso que terror.
Nos traen por historia una version libre del cuento aleman Hänsel y Gretel, manteniendo la base intacta, con eso me refiero a los huerfanos que aca tambien son huerfanos y a la "bruja" que en el film es una ex estrella de cabaret psicologicamente dañada. Lo cual causa el abuso, aprovechamiento (lo etico tiralo a la basura) que podemos ser los seres humanos con otros y la perdida de la inocencia causada no por un deseo propio sino por una respuesta a las acciones de los demas, ahora bien, ¿que tiene esto que no lo hayamos visto ciento de veces en otras peliculas? El año de estreno sin lugar a dudas.
Pasando con el tema actoral, no conozco a ningun actor (es algo obvio, creo) pero dejenme decirles que desempeñan un buen trabajo.
La musicalizacion acorde a los momentos de suspenso, bien logrados pero alguno de los foleys me mataban.
En fin me parecio una pelicula recomendable, para los amates de los clasicos thrillers y del subgenero psycho-biddy y si buscas solo sangre date media vuelta y volve de donde viniste.

در گذشته ها میلولیم، فکر، فکر، فکر، نسل زندانیهای انفرادی
فکر می کنیم پس نیستیم...فکر کردن و خیال حس آزادی؟
خاک اکنون در دست و گذشته می کاریم، خواب یا که بیداریم؟
با ضرب و تقسیم گذشته و حال، می سازیم آینده در این آبادی!
.
گذشته که مرده باشد حاصلی ندارد به حالِ آینده
با گیاهان برقص در باد تا ببینی فرق مرده و زنده
به گیاهان بنگر تا به رقص آیی با تحلیلشان نمی زایی
رها کن سلول انفرادیِ فکر، همبستر شوی با گریه و خنده
.

Movie Review:
In my opinion, the best disaster movie to come out of the 1970's, this one's a classic of 70's adventure and suspense, boasting a great song, fantastic special effects and use of sets, and an excellent score by John Williams. Only things that draw it down are really dated vibes and dialogue, and one or two obvious miniature effects. 8/10

کوبریک: معتقدم به خاطر همه ی فشارهای قانون تولید و «لژیون کاتولیک نجابت»به اندازه کافی جنبه ی اروتیک رابطه ی هامبرت با لولیتا را دراماتیک نکردم. اگر می توانستم دوباره کل فیلم را از اول بسازم، مولفه های اروتیک رابطه شان را به اندازه رمان ناباکوف مورد تاکید قرار می دادم
