5.0 out of 5 stars One of Irons' Best! Sept. 29 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
One of my favorite movies of all time! It is POIGNANT, yet DEEPLY DISTURBING. I saw this movie for the first time years ago and never forgot about it as I am a huge Jeremy Irons fan. Irons does such an outstanding job playing this role that it is even more disturbing. Even so, you cannot look away -- it's like driving by a site of a car crash. You don't want to look, but fascination prevails! Highly Recommend!

How good did Adrian Lyne have to be to compete with Vladimir Nabokov and Stanley Kubrick in his 1997 version of the great "Lolita"? So good that he transcends wicked humor, achieving the echoes of real tragedy - well above the Python-esque thrill of absurdity achieved by Kubrick and even by the master himself, Nabokov.
Charles Dickens wrote of his favorite character, David Copperfield, that "he has a disciplined heart", and Lyne brings this eminently sane, innately forgiving love of all the novel's characters to this controlled, beautifully scored and accurately scripted film.
Lyne's closing note on the deaths of Humbert and Lolita (only a month apart, in November and December, 1950 - he of coronary thrombosis in prison, and she of complications in childbirth) tolls like a clear and gentle cathedral bell. It signals the end of an obsession comparable to the medieval idea of courtly love - which had absolutely nothing to do with marriage, but plenty to do with high-quality, sublime booty - and the end of a truly good film: a masterpiece of appreciation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good viewing! Feb. 26 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film is well acted and the story line is well thought out and produced. Dominique Swain is a delectable Lolita. The sex scenes are limited in what they display, quite unlike the nature of the story - no "hot" scenes! But the acting makes up for this in part. Too bad the story has such a tragic ending.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ageless Lolita Jan. 19 2012
By Purus
Format:VHS Tape
Ageless Lolita by Nabokov.

Weird, depressing, but true and believable love story. Love does not respect age or moral values; it is above law, logic, reason, and sex. Very fine line between pedophilia combined with latent incest and melancholic romance. Final scenes could be omitted, they don''t fit into the main plot.
Lolita is included on Time's list of the 100 best English-language novels, it is 4th on the Modern Library's 1998 list of the 100 Best Novels of the 20th century, and on World Library's list of one of The 100 Best Books of All Time.(Wikipedia)

3.0 out of 5 stars Can't Quite Decide . . . Jan. 31 2004
Format:DVD
This screen adaption of Vladimir Nabokov's sensual novel of the same name took me by suprise from the moment it began. Jeremy Irons really is fantastic as Humbert Humphrey. For a film that deals with the societal taboo of nyphettes and older men, Irons turns what could of been the role of a monster into the role of a broken man. The older Humphrey recaptures the essence of a first love when he become involved with the (very) young Dolores Hayes. Indeed the subject matter is hard to swallow, but do try to give the film a chance. Unexplainably, Lolita is one of the greatest love stories of all time. It is about a man in love with his past. I do fail to give the film five stories with good reason. Dolores Hayes is played by Dominique Swain, who although captures the vivaciousness of a young nymphette, just doesn't seem right in the role. For such a tragic story, Swain seems to have randomley stuck with some of the worst dialogue. Director Adrian Lyne stuck closely to the original novel (unlike Stanley Kubrik who sensationally skewed the story as a black comedy) but didn't quite make it all the way there. But, even with its flaws, I find Lolita to be a beautiful telling and that it probably due to the talent of Mr.Irons. Never have I seen someone play such a sad man with such sincerity.

4.0 out of 5 stars A FASCINATING STORY OF OBSESSION July 4 2004
Format:DVD
It is interesting to compare this movie and its predecessor, to "Pretty Baby."
Some critics claim "Lolita" is a true love story. I disagree.
Dominique Swain is beautiful and incredibly sexy; and Irons wants to possess her. Realistically, this can not be, so conflict, and ultimately death, ensue.
In "Pretty Baby," Brooke Shields is stunningly beautiful, adorably so, but not sexy, although she becomes a child prostitute.
While Swain obviously knows exactly what is on men's minds, Shields portrays a child playing at the sex trade.
Ultimately, her photographer-lover lets her go on to a normal childhood, just as earlier he freed the bird trapped in the whore-house. This is love.
Athough both films are visually beautiful, in "Pretty Baby," Sven Nyquist's cimematography is transcendentally so. His shots of Brooke Shields posing for her photographer-lover are like peering into the tender, throbbing core of life itself.

It is impossible to make a faithful (legal) movie of Nabokov's novel. However, this is very good approximation of it.
Jeremy Irons is perfectly cast as Humbert, and captures the kind of clueless social fumbling and bumbling which is a large part of the character in the novel. Humbert is not comfortable around people of any age. Domenique Swain, in her first role, pulls off an acceptable version of the title character, both vulnerable and crafty. Although Frank Langella is no Peter Sellers, his rendition of Clare Quilty is much more realistic and true to the novel - even the over-the-top death scene with the ballet-like movements and red spit-bubble is almost straight from the book. A real problem was casting Melanie Griffith as Charlotte - unfortunately she was completely wrong for the part - being too shrill and light.
The cinematography was excellent. The feeling of travel - 27,000 miles in the course of a couple years, and geography plays a substantial part in the book, and was well represented in the movie.
Beautiful score by Morricone, who also did the well-regarded "The Mission" score.
For all the good things in the movie, the same three things in both the Lyne and Kubrick versions bother me, as I feel it robs Humbert of some nuance to his character:
1. No mention of first wife. He was not always just into nymphets.
2. No mention of second wife, Rita, (and taping the goodbye note to her navel so she would find it).
3. The last page and a half from the book was left out. This is possibly the most moving passage of the novel - when Hubert offers his apology for all his nastiness, and his admonition to Lolita, and the revelation that neither Lolita nor Humbert are alive as we read the book, and his pathetic summation...
