>and then I told them: no no this novel is just my tribute and proof of passion for America and the English language
Normies react to the book with weirded-out reactions.
>I-it was a good book, but it was disturbing...
>I'd like it if I didn't hate the main character so much
>Really a grim allegory for our oversexulized society
>I've never heard about this book, what is it, anon? O-oh, t-that sounds interesting...
You don't remake classics. And that classic was already remade once; we really don't need another such catastrophe.
Lol, that reminds me, anybody ever read Nabakov's proposed screenplay? He published it later as its own thing. It's good, but it's funny in a cute kind of way, because Nabakov didn't have the slightest idea about writing scripts.
So you have to lie because you're incapable of formulating a decent argument?
She was 14 during filming and 15 at the time of release.
Please indulge me with your patrician tastes, anon.
all the books in pic related need a movie adaptation, tbqh
Um no. It wasn't even one of the best films of the year.
The acting is very dated, even for the time.
The humour isn't very funny, and I'm a massive Peter Sellars fan.
The script is atrocious, which hurts to say.
I wish it were good, I usually love Kubrick, I love Nabokov and Sellars, but it was just a fucking let down.
It's always been coasting on
>how could they make a movie about that scandalous book!
Which no one cares about anymore.
People generally talk about Kubrick from Lolita to Eyes Wide Shut. People know about Spartacus but no one really talks about it. Paths of Glory very rarely, and The Killing? Forget about it.
I propose we start talking about him from Strangelove onwards from now on.
A guy with an opinion.
I don't see people talking about it enough, but maybe I don't go to Paths of Glory forums.
I watch his movies, I don't sit around spelling his name all day. Christ.
Their mom has big boobs, so it's genetic
Standards have changed. We're more liberal about gayism and general sexuality, but not this. I grew up in the 80s and 90s and 6th form schoolgirls (16-18) were considered a perk of the job for male teachers. Now a British MP got thrown out of his party for sexting a 17 year old dominatrix who contacted him first.
>“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 been no Lolita at all had I not loved, one summer, an initial girl-child. In a princedom by the sea. Oh when? About as many years before Lolita was born as my age was that summer. You can always count on a murderer for a fancy prose style. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, exhibit number one is what the seraphs, the misinformed, simple, noble-winged seraphs, envied. Look at this tangle of thorns.”
