The plot starts off with Humbert Humbert a college professor who goes to America for work purposes but he has one dark secret, that he is a paedophile inside. He get's a room by Mrs. Haze (widowed and desperate to find love) but only because she has a 14 year old daughter Dolores or "Lolita". While staying in the house, he confides in his diary of his desires to seduce the young girl and have his way with her. Lolita on the other hand, actually is the one who teases Humbert on purpose whenever she is around him when her mother isn't looking. So really, it takes two to tango. Nothing sexual ever happens during THIS time, but it is until her mother Mrs. Haze sends her daughter to an all girls camp in the summer and plans to marry Humbert. Humbert accepts but only to get closer to Lolita and not her mother. They are married for a couple of weeks, but one day Mrs. Haze finds Humbert's diary of his paedophilic desires to have her daughter in his arms, and threatens to kick him out. He tries to justify this, but of course Mrs. Haze is no fool. Moments later as if Humbert's wishes were answered, Mrs. Haze get's hit and killed by a car as she crosses the street to the post office to send her daughter a letter of what has just happened. Humbert is shocked but not distressed by this he takes the letter and burns them. He packs up his and Lolita's belongings and picks her up at camp. There the two go cross country to motel to motel and you can probably guess what happens.
However, something else is going on. A famous playwrite/artist named Claire Quilty is actually hunting Lolita down to take her away as well for the same desires of Humberts. He is just like Humbert but instead has ZERO conscious. Quilty works with a woman named Vivianne who knows what his intentions are and is behind it as well. Lolita knows of Claire Quilty but not of his darker versions of what Humbert's fantasy's are. Lolita even has a crush on Quilty but never says anything to Humbert. The two (Humbert and Quilty) accidentally bump into one another at the Huntress Lodge Inn and Quilty has a disturbing conversation with Humbert about liking little girls. Humbert though, poses as if he doesn't know what he is talking about and leaves Quilty to himself. Upstairs, Lolita in asleep in bed at the Inn (given sleeping pills so Humbert can have his way with her). Humbert proceeds to rape her in the middle of the night but she wakes up before he even get's to her and tells him to sleep on the floor. He sleeps on a cot, and in the morning the unexpected happens. Lolita forces HERSELF on Humbert and the two make love in the morning.
After that Lolita and Humbert go cross country again and then return to a all girls private school for Lolita to attend and Humbert the professor who teaches there. Things seem all good for the two until Humbert becomes obsessive and untrustworthy of Lolita due to her sneaky ways of skipping school, hanging around and potentially having sexual exchanges with the boys at school, along with wanting to be in a play so badly. Rumors are also going around that Lolita sleeps with her father and so the head principals ask Humbert if this is true but he denies anything. Upset at the rumors of Lolita's ways Humbert restricts her of being a normal teenage girl, which makes her rebellious and turns Lolita to hate Humbert. She begs Humbert to join a play at school, but he seems hesitant. In the end, he accepts her to go to the play but then takes her out once he finds out that Quilty is there and actually wrote the play. Humbert interrogates Lolita as to why Quilty is there but no words come out of her. He also has been told that she has been skipping her piano lessons in which she lies and says she has gone but in reality Lolita skips them to be with Quilty.
During the film sequence, Quilty actually pretends to be several people that Humbert doesn't realize to be him. He poses as a doctor, a cop and other things just so he could use Lolita as an art protoge and not to actually love her. At the mid end of the film, Lolita disappears for two years after Humbert and Lolita leave school. Humbert then gets a letter from Lolita saying she is pregnant, and needs money for her and her husband. Humbert comes to Lolita's address and he learns what really happened to Lolita and who was behind it all. She reveals it was Quilty the whole time and that she never loved Humbert but she loved Quilty. Humbert begs for her to come back with him, but due to how she has a husband, a child on the way, and no love for Humbert she declines after Humbert gives her the money she asked for saying "I'd rather be with Quilty than you". Humbert realizes that Lolita is mentally ill from the events that he posed in on her life and realizes that there is no chance in changing her mind. Humbert is heartbroken and leaves without saying goodbye, and goes to Quilty's mansion, killing him after making Quilty remember who he is and the little girl he tracked down.
In the book, Lolita dies from childbirth and Humbert dies in jail after killing Quilty and found guilty for confessing what he has done to Lolita. But, in this movie, Lolita is seen still alive and only Humbert dies.
Overall, it's a sad but yet ambiguous film that makes you think of whether or not feeling sorry for Humbert and Lolita. It's a tragic tale but it is also a great story as well. It also poses a lesson of Karma. Humbert wanted Mrs. Haze dead so he could get close to Lolita, but in order to have nice things something bad must happen in return.
Humbert: Quilty! Quilty?
Quilty: Ah, wha? Who's there?
Humbert: Are you Quilty.
Quilty: No, I'm... Spartacus. You come to free the slaves or sumpn?
Humbert: Are you Quilty?
Quilty: Yeah, yeah, I'm Quilty, yeah, sure.
We all know Stanley Kubrick's Lolita.
Many of us have been waiting for years for this cinema classic to be released in HD.
This review will concentrate
on the BR playback experience and not the narrative.
I initially feared that both Lolita and Barry Lyndon were part of a hurried transfer to facilitate
the recently released "Kubrick Limited Edition Collection" on BR. Basically a quick cash-grab
package from Warner Brothers. I was expecting a rushed transfer with a PQ that left much
to be desired.
During playback, I was pleasantly awarded with a PQ that was consistently satisfying.
The b&w images displayed clean edge detail, luminous whites, believable mid-tones and levels of gray, as
well as deep black levels. Great contrast throughout the whole feature with very minor crush on only the darkest
Keep in mind that both Lolita and Barry Lyndon BRs were not part of an extensive full
restoration project. Instead they are the result of clean and deft transfers.
The PQ's overall detail at 1080P was more than enough to fill a 52" XBR lcd screen with authority.
Projecting the BR image to a 150" screen ( via Sony VPL-VW50 1080P projector ) was a major treat,
with no noticeable loss of detail or contrast ( the inky blacks, crisp whites and endless gray levels with just enough film
grain remaining. )
The SQ was equally satisfying presented in DTS-HD master-audio 5.1.
As with the Barry Lyndon BR release, my minor complaints:
Only 1 SD trailer included in this single disc, no other supplementary material.
Flimsy BR case with no inner card, a spartan treatment of a cinema masterpiece..
5 stars for the film
4 stars for PQ and SQ
1 star for the packaging
half star for supplementary material
Next year ( 2012 ) will be 50 years since Lolita was released.....could there be a 50th Anniversary BR edition with all
the supplemental goodies awaiting in the wings? Maybe the Criterion Collection will take a swing at bat on BR?
Who knows, but for now at under $15, this BR version satisfies.
BTW the last 2 films in Kubrick's canon will be available on BR Aug 16th! The Killing BR disc will contain Killers Kiss ( both remastered).
Kubrick disowned Fear and Desire, so I think a transfer into BR for that title would be wishful thinking.
