Not that this is relevant to Shutter Island but I watched Lolita last night and saw it was a Stanley Kubrick film. I remember Peter saying this one one of his fav directors.

I guess he was a hell of a director. Lolita, , in the book the girl was 11 years old. Subject matter still pretty taboo, and of course no one condones an affair with a captured 11 year old, no one approved by society anyway. The movie makes her out to be more of a very adult 16 or 17 year old and Humbolt a weak adult who falls deeply in love with this girl. Sue Lyons was beautiful. The story is so personal and tragic, I really think the movie is a masterpiece.

Hi Barb. Nice to see you here. I haven't seen Lolita myself. I'll have to get round to it :)

Maybe wouldn't say I hate it but it's as close to objectively terrible as it's possible to get

Yeah like I say I couldn't really hate it but it feels like a Nolan thing, thought the silliness was plodding a lot of the time
