Lolita (1962) 
Lolita (1962)
3/4 stars

The first half of this movie seemed much too comical for me- especially after reading the book. I understand that Stanley Kubrick tried to make this a sort of black comedy but it was a little too surreal for my taste- turning the story of pedophilia into something light. I thought that the woman who played Charlotte Haze overacted at times which was kind of annoying but once she was out of the story the movie was much more enjoyable and interesting to me. Although Sue Lyon was great in this, I really think they should have cast a girl who looked a little younger to play Lolita since a most of the shock value is supposed to stem from her age. I can't remember if they mentioned it in the movie but in the original story she is supposed to be twelve when she first meets Humbert. Then again, maybe I should just judge the movie for being a movie and not a movie based on a book.
