Kubrick once said, "The feel of the experience is the important thing, not the ability to verbalize it." One of the few unquestioned masters still at work, Stanley Kubrick has put Criterion through its paces in six editions. A painstaking perfectionist, he has taught us as much about the feel of a great transfer--with his sense of cool precision and his obsession with technical detail--as he has taught audiences worldwide about their own fears, dreams, and desires.

Now back in print! "Having seen Lolita countless times on television and tape, I found this three-sided Criterion Collection disc a textural revelation." -Tim Lucas, Video Watchdog

Shelley Winters, Peter Sellers and James Mason star in Stanley Kubrick's adaptation of Vladimir Nabokov's provocative novel. Deftly mixing sex and irony, Lolita chronicles the taboo affair between a professor and his nubile teenage stepdaughter. Criterion's edition features a new transfer, exclusively supervised by Kubrick, and the original theatrical trailer.
