Lolita: this story is not an easy one to tell, both because of the taboo subject matter and the generally unsympathetic characters. The relationships between the characters, however, is an interesting one. The detached, cold approach may ease the process, but it also makes it harder to relate to anyone. Acting is generally very solid; Peter Sellers makes use of his powers to create a great manipulative creep. The standout is the camera work, meticulous and rich without being excessively showy.
