Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


After watching Lolita made by Kubrick last night, I was very depressed, sobbing and panting. I’m not concerned about Lolita – it doesn’t matter whether it’s just a strange love affair like “a pear flower pressing a Begonia”. Uncontrollable desire is the theme. A well-educated intellectual with a delicate mind, when he is crazy about desire, everything seems so terrible.

In the first scene of the film, there is a surreal atmosphere in the messy home of “playwright” queerty. The plot in the film, rather than developing in a natural order, is just a crazy journey in one’s heart. If I may explain, a clue that runs through the film is: how do vulnerable, fantasy loving, arrogant and jealous intellectuals meet people in the lively, material and new world.

Mr. Humbert is a doctor from the old world. He teaches French poetry and is full of educated people. His landlady was a typical American woman at that time. She was healthy and cheerful. She usually liked to jump two sentences of French, but she had no head. In the eyes of Europeans, she was just vulgar and ignorant. She loves Humbert’s cultural temperament, and he only loves her little daughter Lolita’s youth and vitality. Deformed love triangle, two hopeless sides, this sense of despair reminds me of mcalleson’s song of sad cafe, which has a strange nature of almost abstract.

Most of the love in reality probably ends here, but writers still have to continue to write to describe the deeper reality. Later, it was clearly explained that Lolita had never loved Humbert from the beginning, and she even wrote an advertisement letter to Humbert. Later, Humbert wanted to shoot his wife, but he didn’t dare to do it, but his wife happened to be killed by a car – almost the same way as disillusionment in the Great Gatsby. These two plots are obviously unnatural, but they are in line with the character’s psychological process. In my opinion, the trip between Humbert and Lolita after this is more of a fantasy trip.

Humbert took Lolita back from the summer camp, traveled with her, and then changed his home. Humbert wanted to control Lolita, prevent her from dating boys of her age, and even keep her from spending too much time with girls. But Lolita is not at all interested in his antiques – what French poetry, what knowledge and culture. She is just an American girl. She just wants to be an actor and date boys. Hanbert was completely helpless and couldn’t control the direction of things. They finally had a big quarrel, but when hanbert asked Lolita to continue the long trip with him, Lolita agreed. This is another strange plot, and the second trip is almost crazy.

It seems that a car is always following them. This man, the embodiment of jealousy and doubt, haunted Humbert from the beginning. From the end, we know that this is the so-called playwright queldi, which is one of the most important characters. According to the plot, he has long been eyeing Lolita, pretending to be a policeman to chat with Humbert, and becoming a school psychologist to threaten Humbert. Now he drives a car to track them, and even turns into a man who helps Lolita’s husband at the end of the film. I just want to say that from the perspective of plot coherence and camera performance, queerty is not a real character at all. Of course, Humbert will never want to get rid of queerty. He was full of madness, and the woman he was inseparable from was as mysterious as coming out of an Egyptian mural. This is simply Humbert’s imagination. The eternal competitor has more demeanor and even more culture than him. He hides in the dark and is greedy for his Lolita.

Lolita was hospitalized. Humbert went to see her and brought three books, one of which was Eliot’s poem. But her eyes are not far from the comic magazine in her hand. Humbert could no longer keep Lolita’s heart. He was finally ill and had a fever. The mysterious man called him in the middle of the night and worried hysterically. So far, the film reached a climax. So that Lolita was picked up by her “Uncle”, which didn’t seem far fetched at all. In my opinion, even if Lolita evaporated at this time, it didn’t seem strange, because everything was Humbert’s fantasy – love, opponent, travel. At this moment, all love has become stupid, all hospitality has become casting pearls before swine. Crazy love turns into neuroticism in that delicate mind. Jealousy turned into quildy, pestering him forever, following him and tearing him apart. This is destiny, which is determined by spiritual temperament.

Three years later, Humbert gave Lolita a living allowance. At this time, he finally came back to reality. He saw that Lolita was pregnant (but it was still beautiful in the film). She left a literature professor and preferred to be a waiter. Finally, she found a very ordinary husband “Dick”. The dick, who could not speak neatly and behaved coarsely, but Lolita preferred to be with him. Hanbert gave Lolita the money one by one, thinking of her own pay and sincerity regardless of return, but Lolita was only looking forward to her future life. One side is full of vitality, the other is in the old world despair of “all difficulties can overcome me”. At this time, the fantasy had been disillusioned, and Humbert embarked on the road of self destruction.

When he finally stepped into the door of queldi’s house, he actually entered his heart: exquisite cultural fragments were placed in disorder, everything was old, moldy and lifeless. The decadent robe of ancient Rome and the harp of ancient Greece. But what’s the use? Queerty occupied his home and his heart. Queerty was the source of all his depravity: paedophilia, madness, jealousy, greed and hypocrisy. The bullet finally passed through Lolita’s portrait and killed queerty, which was also hanbert’s own demise. This is actually a self break, and Lolita, the light of his soul and the fire of desire, will never belong to him.
