Is the region 1 Lolita (11998 version) uncut? And no, I am not a pedophile.
DO you mean 1997? There was no 1998 version, AFAIK.
The cover makes no mention of it being uncut, so I doubt it.
1997, 1998, 11998, whichever.....i'm sure you all know which one i'm talking about.
I understand the question but I have to ask - uncut from what? It is 137 minutes. How long is the R2 version?
I remember hearing something about when i was 1st shown on American cable TV that it was cut. I don't know if this is true or not.
From the IMDB:
The DVD has several deleted scenes. This version is closer to Nabokov's novel, so it's my favorite of the two films, although Kubrick is one of my all-time favorite directors nonetheless.
So there's no way to find this film uncut?
Well I liked it. The Morricone score helps tremendously.
I love this film as well. Definitely one of Lyne's better pictures. It deserves a better transfer than the current DVD.
yeah, Lynes is a far more literal translation than Kubricks which ironically makes it even farther removed from the source.
isn't the screenwriter for this version a respected playwright or something?
an amazing display of hack work.
Rich - Thanks for the interesting post. I've always meant to read the Nabokov, loved the Kubrick, thought the Lyne was okay but found the whole sex thing a bit creepy . Your points really helped me understand why - they shouldn't have been taken seriously.
