Lolita began the string of masterpieces that form the second half of Kubrick’s career, through which he became one of world cinema’s most heralded filmmakers. A simple setup forms the basis for this tale of intense obsession: Humbert Humbert (James Mason), a professor in his 40s, moves to New Hampshire for the summer and takes a room in the boarding house where Dolores Haze (Sue Lyon) or “Lolita,” a freewheeling and flirtatious 14-year-old, lives with her mother. While the novel by Vladimir Nabokov—who also wrote the script—is controversial for its frank depiction of Humbert and Lolita’s sexual relationship, the film was subject to intense censorship during and after production, but famously skirted the mores of the Production Code in unexpected ways. “Lolita is a Master Class in energetic direction: especially in everything to do with the concerted, integrated action of framing, staging, camera movement, costume, objects/props, and the postures and gestures of (brilliantly inventive) actors.”—Adrian Martin, De Filmkrant. “I like all of Kubrick’s films, but my favorite may be Lolita. I just like the world. I like the characters. I love the performances. James Mason is phenomenal beyond the beyond in this film.”—David Lynch.
