The Austin Chronicle


Not rated, 152 min. Directed by Stanley Kubrick. Starring Sue Lyon, Peter Sellers, Shelley Winters, James Mason.

REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Thu., June 29, 2000

Nabokov’s satire is sensationally cast, with Winters and Sellers delivering some of their best work ever. The details of the storyline about a professor’s love for a sexy nymphet may seem a bit tepid in these times, especially in light of the Adrian Lyne’s remake of a few years ago. Nevertheless, the dark humor shines through.
