    Default Lolita

    Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov (novel)

    Humbert Humbert - INTJ
    Lolita - ESFP
    Charlotte Haze - ESFJ
    Clare Quilty - ????


    "Lolita", the 1997 film, by Adrian Lyne

    Humbert Humbert (Jeremy Irons) - INxP
    Lolita (Dominique Swain) - ESFP
    Charlotte Haze (Melanie Griffith) - ESFx
    Clare Quilty (Frank Langella) - ????


    To anyone who has read the book or seen the film: what do you think? I haven't considered the film from the 60s, which I haven't seen. Corrections, additions, impressions?

    I agree.

    As for Clare, he was an EXTP (Hobbies: masquerade, fast cars, photography, pets.)
    He grew up in Ocean City, NJ.
    It is a summer resort for the rich in Philadelphia.
    It is there he made the contacts.
    A socialite friend, the wife of a wealthy industrialist from Pittsburgh, participated in two of his plays. One of them won a prize.

    The Haze family had a holiday in Ocean City, in 1945.
    Clare engaged on a lecture tour in New England, early in 1946.
    Mrs Haze was the secretary of the authors' guild, in Ramsdale, Mass.

    I saw the 1997 film. I have no recollection of it.
    Kubrick made an impression.

    Hmm, I haven't read too much about him, but I could imagine that from his writing. I could also see him projecting his personality onto Hum.

    I could see Quilty as an ENTP... not too sure about ESTP, though. I should really make an effort to see the Kubrick film.

    I agree

    I don't remember much about the book, except for a few good scenes that stuck in my memory. Never seen the films.

    Woof.

    The actress who played lolita in the '97 film was annoying to no end. Stupidly grinning with awful timing.

    She was very close to how I imaged Lolia. Very impish.
